This past Sunday, I attended a wonderful performance of "The Nutcracker", by the Lakeville City Ballet.
Emily, a cousin to my daughter-in-law, Maria, was cast as the "Snow Queen" (they usually hire a professional for this part!), "Flower Princess" and "Arabian".
She was just amazing.....so much talent at the age of 15!
Below is a photo of Maria, Emily and Emily's little sister, Abby.
Emily in the dressing room with the other dancers. Here is a photo of Emily after the show. She was honored yesterday with a medal for being with the Ballet for 10 years.

How exciting! She's just lovely....exactly what a ballerina cast in that part should be!
