Ballet Photography: North Carolina Dance Theatre's Nutcracker


There are so many great traditions at this time of year and one favorite is North Carolina Dance Theatre's annual performance of the Nutcracker.

While so many things in the ballet remain the same, it was fun to see some new faces giving wonderful performances in the classic roles.

We are blessed to have NCDT in Charlotte so get out to see a performance if you get a chance. There are a variety of performances running through Dec. 22nd.

We wish everyone a wonderful holiday season!
