It’s that time of year again! The time where every little dancer sits and watches Clara dance with her prince, while dreaming of being her one day. This is the dream my daughter has had since she was little. When she was three all she wanted for Christmas was a Nutcracker and to be Clara dancing with her prince. At nine this is still a dream. Going to the ballet to see the performances and the ballerinas dancing is the highlight of her year. If you’re little girl is like mine, make her year by taking her to see one of these Nutcracker Performances in New Orleans this Christmas.
