Holiday :: The Nutcracker

Novelty Nutcrackers from West Elm
I went and saw The Nutcracker today at the Kansas City Ballet. I don't think I've seen it since I was a kid. I'll definitely be going more often. I'd forgotten how much I love watching the ballet, plays, the symphony, etc. Next year I'll be doing much more of that.

I wish I could have taken photos, or even if they just had some good ones on the site. The color in the costumes swirling around against the backdrop was beautiful, and the bodies of the dancers are enough to make you want to abstain from bread for a week.

I was in awe of the dancers, and thoroughly enjoyed the performance, the music, and spending time with some extended family I don't get to see often enough. One of my cousins has been in The Nutcracker for the past three years, and she had more of an acting role this year. There are still performances and tickets left if you want to go!

I would absolutely love to go to see The Nutcracker. I danced from age 3 to age 20 and have always loved that ballet. Unfortunately I haven't seen it in years! I have a son who's almost 2 and my husband isn't particularly interested...perhaps I need to ask a girlfriend sometime and make him babysit :).
