Sugar Plums Dancing in Our Heads
I am posting today about our experience with the Nutcracker ballet this year. My dd is dancing with the Carolina Ballet and has the honor of being a truffle and dancing with the Sugar Plum Fairy. Talk about what dreams are made of for a little girl! The whole experience has been wonderful, lots of work and time committment, but wonderful. I am so humbled by my daughter and her attitude in dancing in this ballet. She has been full of pure joy and I have had so much fun shadowing her and watching from the sidelines. I really have had to sit on my hands when I see the different dancers from the Carolina Ballet company come and go...I guess you could say I was starstruck! I love this time of year and I love this ballet. If you get a chance, go to the Carolina Ballet's Nutcracker this year or to your local ballet company's production of this great ballet or maybe catch a version of it on television. It definitely has our family dreaming of sugar plums and such.
