Nutcracker!!!


It's Nutcracker time!!! Every year my girls audition for the Nutcracker. The school they attend also has a ballet company and every year they perform the NC. It's a RI tradition. I don't think there is a person in the state that has not seen or at least heard of Festival Ballet NC. it's performed at the Providence Performing Arts Center biggest and prettiest Theatre in the State.

It's an exhausting time for all involved but so exciting! This year is Bella's first time. The little ones all start out as Angels.

Sophia is a Party Girl. THAT's What we were up to! Those pretty curls!!!



And Olivia is a Soldier and Trepak. Trepak are the Russian girls who dance a long with the Russian Man who dance for Clara in the Land Of Sweets.


How Silly! Good thing they take professional pictures! I'm no good.
Of course they don't allow pictures on stage. So this is as good as it will get.


And OK! I did just write a bragging post but I'm just so proud of my girls. They have been rehearsing since September. They have missed party's and sleepovers, dances, school functions and even their brothers birthday party. The whole cast works hard and put on a beautiful show.
And if I can round up some "bootleg" video I will try to post it.
