The time had come to move Nutcracker rehearsals from the studio to the Civic Center. Theater week is exciting and exhausting! Monday starts out more casual and fun. The girls don't have to wear stage make-up and get to wear red and green instead of their costumes.
The girls (and chaperones) spend a lot of time in the dressing room.
Marking the floor with the executive director of the ballet looking on.
From Tuesday through the rest of the week it's full dress rehearsals.
The table is full of a variety of activities to keep them entertained and quiet as possible in between numbers.
Ready to head down to the stage
The girls that are in both the angel scene and mirliton scene had a quick change backstage.
I love the memories and friendships that are made through ballet.
