The Nutcracker.

I have always wanted to see The Nutcracker ballet at Christmastime… and I finally got to see it!

5I really didn’t know the story of The Nutcracker… and didn’t understand what was happening until I read the program at intermission. It was a cute little story and I really enjoyed the dancing. Although I did dance/drill team and was a cheerleader in school, I never actually took dance lessons. I decided in college that I would take a beginning ballet class because it is never too late to learn, right? Oh. My. Word. If you don’t have respect for ballet dancers, just take a beginners class. Those girls (and guys) are athletes, no doubt. It only took one class for me to realize that it might be a little too late for me to become a ballerina. 😉

Nevertheless, a girl can dream… and live vicariously through all of the beautiful ballerinas at the Nutcracker. :)

    Glad you went! I used to dance the Nutcracker every year in my teen years. I loved it. Now I take all the kids to see it every year. Its tradition for us.
    On the radio today they were playing a song from the Nutcracker and my son refused to get out of the car until we finished listening to it lol. Needless to say we love it!
