Mother Ginger and Isabella

This scene is always my favorite of The Nutcracker Ballet. In the version our ballet does, Mother Ginger is a man atop a wooden scaffolding that gets rolled out on stage. In this version, the lemon drop dancers underneath are so tiny that such shenanigans aren't necessary. Keep your eye on little Isabella, who is so full of the joy of dancing that she dumps the practiced routine and steals the entire number!

That was adorable. I do miss the grade school band and choral concerts, and dance recitals, etc., now that everyone is all grown up. Good times.
