This past weekend the ballet school held their formal promotional photo shoot for the Claras (there are 2 casts, each has it's own Clara) and Fritz (J is the only Fritz, so he dances with both casts), to use in advertising and the catalog. I thought J might find this a little overwhelming -- it took hours of formal posing -- but he said it was actually a lot of fun. The boy loves a spotlight.
J and one Clara get in a bit of practice while the other Clara is being photographed.
I'll have bunches of professional shots to share when they are available. We actually finally abandoned the shoot to go find other things to do -- J might have been having fun, but honestly, the rest of us thought it was a little boring.
Want to come see J dance in the Nutcracker?? The shows will be held at Manchester High School in Manchester, CT, and the dates are Sat Dec 10 at 2pm and 7pm, Sun Dec 11 at 2pm, Sat Dec 17 at 2pm and 7pm, and Sun Dec 18 at 2pm. I'll post ticket information when it becomes available. The school hires in professionals for some of the larger roles, as well as allowing all of their students to participate, it's really a WONDERFUL production, well worth making the time to see. Many homeschooled kids involved too -- in fact, one of the Claras is also homeschooled!
