Have you ever wanted to watch a heartfelt tale about a girl and her nutcracker? Have you ever wanted to see the Sugar plum Fairy or Snow Queen dance beautifully? Have you ever wanted to see a beautiful story only told by dancing, because no words were needed? I was given the opportunity to watch this wonderful ballet last Saturday.
The Nutcracker was filled with several beautiful dancers and dance moves. The show was directed by Cheri Lindell, and danced by several Dance Center North dancers. The main characters of the show included Clara, the Sugar Plum Fairy, the Snow Queen, the Nutcracker and several more. It was a wonderful experience in which I had seen several of my friends dance. I am good friends with several girls that had dance in this show including Kelly Vogel, Ellen Barhorst, Abby Paulson, and Emily Smith. Most of my friends had minor roles including Marzipan, the Maid, the Sugar Plum Court. Although they all danced beautifully, Emily Smith had stood out to me the most. She danced her parts with grace and accuracy! Watching her makes me want to hop on stage and dance along. The story of the Nutcracker is a very traditional story. It is a story about a girl and her toy that she recently was given for Christmas. The Nutcracker was magical and protected her from evil mice. Also, it took her on adventure to The Snow Forest and The Kingdom of the Sweets. It is a breathtaking and lovely story that is age appropriate and entertaining for all ages!
