Nutcracker Sweet

Every time December rolls around, I get all nostalgic and start hanging makeshift tutus and tiaras all over the studio. And I always think of my favorite childhood book, A Very Young Dancer by Jill Krementz. It's a day in the life of Stephanie, a young ballerina who snags the coveted role of Mary in the Nutcracker.

With all the ditching school for rehearsals, custom costumes, and quality time with the Sugar Plum Fairy, sometimes I still feel a twinge of jealousy.
