Let me just say the Nutcracker is awesome! And since I do ballet I get to be in it ………well kind of. I go to a christian ballet school so in the winter they the nutcracker in a christian perspective. So instead of the different sweets there’s country’s I am South Africa ( aka Mother Ginger and her Polichinelle). And instead of going through a magical land Clara goes though a world with and without Christ. Even though it’s not the actual Nutcracker it’s still exiting to do a version of it! I have seen the real Nutcracker ( I mean like who hasn’t) and its definitely one of my favorite traditions during the Christmas season.
