The ballet studio where Gianna attends put on an performance of The Nutcracker this weekend. It was the 50th anniversary of when the ballet began in our community - but it was the first time Colleen and the Lake Charles Dance Academy put it on. Can I just say, "Wow!" SO very impressive and beautiful and lovely. And to know many of the dancers was an added bonus.
I took Gianna and my mom for a girl's night out.
Too bad for the fuzzy phone pics.
Gianna was thrilled that her idol, Cecelia, played the lead role of Clara that night.
And her other idol is Cecelia's mom, Colleen, who is my age and danced like a 20 year old angenou. AMAZING Sugar Plum Fairy.
Just incredible, I tell you.

What a wonderful memory. Gianna will be old enough to dance in it next year. I'm not sure how I'm going to tell her that she probably won't get the role of Clara.
