Ballet West came to Santaquin and performed some dances from the Nutcracker for the students.
The dancers showed the studentbody how they warmed up before dancing and explained what it took to be a professional dancer.
Several students from the audience were picked to go on stage and try a spin with the dancers. We think our students did a great job. It's harder to do than it looked!!
The dancers told the story of the Nutcracker Prince, and it was fun to see the costumes and a few of the dances that they will perform in the real show.
For many students, it was the first time they had seen "toe-dancers" in real life.
Thanks, Ballet West for an enjoyable afternoon!
