We only have 7 weeks left until our December Nutcracker performances so each rehearsal from now on is crucial. I love the dance between Big Clara and the Nutcracker Prince. It is finished and the dancers in both casts are perfect. In this photo Justin & Sara are rehearsing for Cast II. We still have tickets available so please drop by the office or give us a call. It is going to be magical!
After going back and forth about whether I should choose a red cover or green cover for my little book about the Nutcracker, I chose green. It's being printed right now and I'll have copies available on my website in about 10 days and in the lobby during The Nutcracker performances. It has 30 color photos in it that were taken at our Nutcracker ballets over the last few years. It's the 3rd book in my series of "Little Haley Stories" and in it I tell the story of The Nutcracker so even the youngest child can understand the story line. But more than that, it deals with the heartache we have all felt in life when we want something we can't have. In this case, the story deals with the heartache & jealousy Haley felt when she wasn't chosen to dance the part of Clara in The Nutcracker when she was a little girl. It's not always easy being a child!
