My daughter, Elisabeth has been dancing since she was three years old. For the past 6 years, she has been dancing in the Pennsylvania Youth Ballet’s production of the “Nutcracker”. During the past 5 years, she has danced in the roles of Angel, Pollichinelle, Arabian Handmaid, Cousin, Party Girl, Mice, Chinese Girl and Soldier.
This year, she auditioned and she landed the lead role of “Clara”! She also danced in the role of Party Girl and Candy Cane. She danced in 7 performances at the Zoellner Arts Center (Dec 11-15, 2013).
I am so proud of her!
Below are some pictures from her performances.
