After months of weekend rehearsals and countless hours of practicing at home and in studios, the big event is almost here! The local dancers selected to perform with the Eugene Ballet in The Nutcracker will have their chance to shine this Saturday, December 12, at 2:00 and 7:30 P.M.
Since Early October, more than 75 dancers, ages 5 to 18, have come together on the Capitol Theatre stage on Sundays, reviewing their steps, cues, and stage placement. When the curtain opens this weekend, they'll be ready.
Arielle, who will be dancing as a dragon, has attended each rehearsal. "They are fun," she says, "But it is a pretty big promise... to come every weekend."
Tickets are still available for the 2009 The Nutcracker, though the matinee is almost sold out! Call 509-853-2787.
