The Nutcracker Ballet

the-nutcracker-2016

Two of the giggly girls were selected to dance roles in The Nutcracker ballet when it was performed locally. Miss J performed an angel role and Miss L performed a soldier role. While it was  a lot of work over several months, they enjoyed the opportunity immensely. The final performance was wonderful and the experience of working with a professional company made it invaluable. Miss L wants even more to grow up to be a ballerina now.

Since the local symphony only performs The Nutcracker Ballet every two years, it will be a while before the girls have a chance to audition once more. I am glad they can savor the experience for a while and be proud of the work they put in.

Here are a few of the dress rehearsal shots of the girls in costume.

We will watch a DVD of The Nutcracker tonight and enjoy all of the dancing and costumes.

Merry Christmas Eve!

 

At Home.

    They should be very proud of themselves, I hope you enjoyed watching the Nutcracker with them. 🙂

      Thank you and yes, it is always a pleasure to sit and watch the Nutcracker. This year was even more fun as they compared what was done in their performance with what they were seeing.
