Just one more Christmas memory, from the year 2000, before I let the season go. It's from a dress rehearsal for that year's Nutcracker. Elizabeth was 17, her partner was Bobby O'Brien, and the choreography, as always, is Russell Sultzbach's, former Joffrey star, and her most beloved teacher. This is the Sugar Plum and Prince 'variation', I think they call it. Larger version here.
