Oh, The Drama!

You might think the excitement of performing in the Nutcracker would wear off.  You'd be wrong. The girls were as excited last night, as they've been each previous day.  They had several stories last night fraught with drama.

First of all they got their long awaited Joffrey Ballet cast t-shirts.  These are photos of my two dancers modeling their prized possessions.



One of the little soldiers fell and badly sprained her ankle just prior to the performance in the afternoon.  She is out for the remainder and had to be wheeled out to her parents.  My girls are devastated for her.

Friday night the girls unknowingly performed for the President of the United States.  They weren't told about his attendance until after the fact.  My dad and I were wondering why the Kennedy Center was using bomb sniffing dogs.  I guess we failed to put 2 and 2 together :-)

During the performance Saturday evening, Clara inhaled a snowflake and began coughing during the performance.  She and Herr Drosselmeyer held an extended and loud conversation about the need for a cough drop directly behind my little tree angel.  She found the whole situation and conversation hysterical and had a difficult time keeping from giggling.

Today they have their two final performances.  I am so proud of them.  They are already talking about when they'll have a chance for participating in something this grand again.
