tech week:

{tutu's and holy berries. it's beginning to look a lot like christmas.}

well... it's begun.
theater week, that is. 
this week is also known as one of the
 busiest, most stressful, happiest, most fun, and craziest weeks of the year.
it's a joy to be in the theater all week.
the hours are hard and long.
being in a dressing room with your friends for hours on end is a blast.
the performances are nerve wracking but exciting.
nutcracker music 24-7 is overwhelming, yet makes it feel like christmas every day.
trying to be a wife, a student a 'personal shopper', and a piano teacher 
while spending 70 hours in the theater this week...
might be a little crazy to say the least. 
that being said... performing is one of the best parts about being a ballerina. 
the stage, the audience, the lights and the expectations are thrilling.
theater week is all worth it in the end.
oh but wait, then we turn around and do it all again next week.
the life of a ballerina is a busy one.
life is lovely right now.
how can it not be when visions of sugar plums dance in your head?


  1. so lovely! the nutcracker is my absolute favorite - it's just so magical. :)

  2. oh wow..that sounds pretty amazing...bringing magic to so many kids and families...
