I am in the Nutcracker Ballet and I have TWO roles! I am SO EXCITED! I will dance as part of the "Hungarian Corps" and also the "Sugar Plum Fairy Corps". I am thinking that both these roles dance on pointe. When I took ballet and performed years ago, my last Nutcracker role was as a flower dancing on pointe shoes. I don't recall the Hungarian characters and what their costumes look like or how they dance, (could have been called something else when I danced) but I do remember the Sugar Plum Fairy Corps. I was planning on accepting and being happy with any part that I got and so to have two parts in seemingly good roles is amazing to me.
I AM ECSTATIC!!!
I auditioned on August 23rd and although I did horribly, I am just glad I got a part. I remember the holiday season feeling so much more festive when I was taking ballet and performing in the Nutcracker.
You'll all come watch me, won't you????
