December 22nd, “Nutcracker” Washington Ballet

Choreography by Septime Webre

I took my daughter to her first Nutcracker. I’ve lost track of how many different versions I’ve seen or danced. I have not lost track of my growing fascination with it as a repeating feature of U.S. dance culture (that will have to wait until next year).

This time, it was enough for me to watch my daughter be enthralled with the dancing toy soldiers and the swirling snow scene. It was aptly “D.C.” with cardinals instead of ribbon candy and dancing cherry blossoms. It had many kids and a local celebrity. It had nutcrackers and more for sale in the lobby. The tradition continues.

For now, that is about all I have to say about the Nutcracker.
