It is no secret that I am Nuts about Dance.
This Time of Year is Especially Exciting for me because it is Nutcracker Season.
The Nutcracker is a Ballet that even a non-ballet lover can probably enjoy.
I Love It because it contains the Dance that I Love Most in the World:
********THE WALTZ OF THE SNOWFLAKES*******
I'm just Crazy about this Dance!
This year I am featuring the Waltz of the Snowflakes from Mark Morris' version of the Nutcracker "The Hard Nut"
Mark Morris is one of my Favorite Choreographers. I think He Is Brilliant. I saw him in person earlier this year and my heart skipped a beat. It really did!
If you ever get a chance to see The Hard Nut you really should. There is so much in this Ballet to Love, from the 1960's cocktail party at the beginning to this:
The Waltz of the Snowflakes. Click right there to watch.
P.S. Even if Ballet is Not Your Thing you might still want to watch this. Just Keep in Mind that half of the Tutu Wearers are MEN.
