Hi Everyone!  


I just wanted to send a quick Happy Thanksgiving wish to all of you - Viktor is so grateful for everyones' support and dedication these past 14 weeks. Our show is almost upon us, and YOUR dancers are AMAZING!  


Here is a NEW NUTCRACKER GUIDE with some adjusted times for the rehearsal week ahead..These days can get long, and info can be confusing sometimes, so please do not hesitate to connect with me if you have any questions.


Last Saturday we gave out the painted mouse shoes.  Our dear Mouse Shoe Man Joe HAND PAINTED THESE SHOES :)  He is a treasure to us!  Your Mouse dancer should have their shoes in a bag with some info on a piece of paper. Put the shoes somewhere SAFE (ballet bag or the wash basket you will bring to the show) and bring them on THURSDAY to LMH DRESS REHEARSAL. Sunday after the show please have your MOUSE DANCER see STACI DUBOSQ to RETURN the borrowed mouse shoes.  This is really important so we have shoes for next year.


If you get some time this weekend, please review the SIGN UP LINKS and add your name if you can help somewhere, and or bring food items for the professional dancers or the Red Carpet Event.  We are still very much in need of parking people (once cars are parked you can come inside and sit in the back and watch the show for free - Parkers are usually inside in enough time to see the start of the show or miss only a few minutes of WALK STREET).  


Now is a great time to start gathering the items your dancer will need for SHOW WEEKEND.  The Nutcracker Guide lists suggestions of what to bring.  Everyone should bring a WASH BASKET to carry their items - this is helpful on lots of levels - it contains their stuff, it makes things easy to transport back and forth, and it helps the dancers stay organized and prevents items from getting lost.  My suggestion is that if they are not using it/wearing it - it stays in the wash basket :) Another task to do now - PUT NAMES ON EVERYTHING - including the wash basket.  Even masking tape and names on small things like make-up, hairspray if possible...it makes it so easy to find homes for misplaced items :) 


I will be thinking of you over this Thanksgiving break and wish you all a wonderful time!  Please be safe and stay healthy.  


Reach out to me if you need anything or have questions!

I will see everyone Tuesday night! (and a few on Monday!)
