This winter, Coral and I are honored to be performing in the Nutcracker! Today, Coral had her photos taken at the fountain in Lincoln Center Plaza. Doesn't she look beautiful? She is performing as Marie, the main character in the show. (Most companies call that role Clara, in case you're a bit confused!)
Coral is so excited about her part! She started performing a few days ago and she is loving it. I'm performing in the other class as a polichinelle- Nutcracker season is my favorite part of being a ballet student. There's just something so magical about hearing the music and waiting in the wings. The Nutcracker music is played a lot at this time of year- whenever I hear it when I'm out shopping, my feet automatically want to dance!
Doesn't Coral look beautiful in her costume? It was specially made for her by Melody Valerie Couture.
And last of all, here I am in my polichinelle costume- also by Melody Valerie! This is my third year as a polichinelle. It's because I'm just the right size for the costume. That's okay though- I love the role!
Have you ever been in a holiday play or performance? What did you do?
