Princess M's ballet troupe puts on The Nutcracker every year at the end of November. They incorporate all the different levels of classes into the various parts of the ballet, from the prima ballerina as the Sugar Plum Princess to the beginning toddlers as the tumbling clowns. It's a real delight to watch each year. Unfortunately this year I didn't get any still shots of PM in her mouse costume, but I did get some of her part as a maypole dancing villager at the end.
Isn't she gorgeous?
This year Alex helped out with some of the male parts as well. Here's the two of them backstage after the show.
I think one of her favorite parts about performing is that she gets to wear stage makeup.
Congratulations Alex and Princess M on all you hard work through the fall and a fantastic performance!!!
