Eggs @Megabooks No, what was it about?? 7d
Megabooks @Eggs it followed a couple of years with the members of ballet west 1 (the main company) in Salt Lake City. In the dance studio/performance and in life. I became a huge fan of beckanne Sisk and follow her on Instagram now. I purchased the two seasons on Amazon when they stopped being available on Hulu, but keep an eye out for it on streaming. I really enjoyed it! 7d
Eggs Oh that sounds so good! With 2 dancer daughters and 2 dancer grandchildren, I am a happy ‘voyeur‘ into dancing life. @Megabooks 😊 7d

We had one of these when I was a little girl so I couldn‘t resist bringing it home with me when I saw it at Goodwill. I only remember my mom having it out for Christmas and New Year‘s Day. In case you aren‘t sure what it is, I included a clue. 😉

A day late for the prompt, but I saw the ballet version of the #nutcracker today.

This was the first time I saw a ballet performance and it was a little weird watching a stage production with no spoken dialogue

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I‘ve never seen one! 12mo
AnneCecilie @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks It‘s never too late to see ballet. And there‘s probably worse places to start than The Nutcracker. The story is known so it‘s possible to read up on the story 12mo
eanderson I went a couple of weeks ago to see the Moscow Ballet. It was awesome! I‘ve seen it a couple of times. I have to say though, I do enjoy the movie version with Macaulay Culkin still. 12mo

AnneCecilie @eanderson I didn‘t know there was a movie version with Culkin. I have to check that one out. 12mo
Blaire @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @AnneCecilie I agree. I‘ve been going since I was little because my grandmother was a fairly serious ballet dancer before she got married but I think you can appreciate it even if new to it. The way they move and control their bodies is amazing! 12mo
AnneCecilie @Blaire I totally agree with you, and then you have the music and the costumes 12mo
