This season I had the opportunity to perform not only in one, but two "Nutcracker" productions. I was featured as the Sugar Plum Fairy for Iowa Dance Theatre in Des Moines, and the Turks and Caicos Friends of the Arts Foundation on the island of Providenciales.
For me, Nutcracker has always been inseparable from holiday celebrations, but it was especially pertinent this year. I not only returned as a featured guest artist to a stage I grew up on, but also was part of the first Nutcracker ever performed on the island of Provo. Both were delightful experiences~ almost as sweet as dancing sugar plums.
Thoughts on dance, creation, yoga, and performance.
