When Jen Smith was a young girl, she danced in the famous holiday ballet, The Nutcracker, several times. Now her daughter, Olivia, is stepping into her mother’s ballet slippers and participating in the ballet.
Backstage at the Ballet is LMBC's artist-in-residence program . This year, it was held at Brownell Elementary School during the last week of November. The ballet company hosted three learning stations for each class that provided hands-on learning experiences in costuming, make-up and choreography. On the final day of the residency, LMBC dancers performed excerpts from The Nutcracker for the entire school. Students, teachers and administrators were delighted!
The Nutcracker has been a part of this family's tradition for 30 years.
