It's day one in St. Louis and I am just really excited to bring you close into the world that is Nutcracker. I really just want to get people excited for the performance and excited for the holiday season.
So far everything is going well. We took a five hour bus ride from Chicago to St. Louis yesterday afternoon, only to arrive and relax for the evening. We had our first stage rehearsal today and we will officially open our Nutcracker season (I will be dancing the Nutcracker Prince) on Thursday evening.
I feel ready and eager. I was definitely prepared for our first stage rehearsal today, but I was most excited about being in the theater and on the stage with the children that will be performing with us. They have prepared for months for this moment and it is finally here when they get to meet, rehearse, and perform with us. I couldn't wait to get to the stage today knowing all the joy that they were going to bring to the company.
I will try to upload plenty of pictures and videos. Will update you soon!
