Ballet at the mall

Me? I'd rather leap off the stage and wear loose clothing. Not that I have anything against the costumes worn by ballet dancers, who dance exquisitely and look spectacular. Their artistry and technique are wonderful to behold and capture, even if briefly, at this odd angle. By performing parts of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker at a mall, they reach out to ordinary people who have probably never seen ballet live before. I can imagine how some young girls and boys in the crowd would be inspired by seeing such beautiful dancers.

But this does mean that the holidays are just around the corner. For better or for worse.
