As A Former Dancer I Remember Moments Like This!
When Lisa Moretti (Lisa’s Dance Studio, Marblehead MA) sent me these images from the New England Dance Ensemble’s production of The Nutcracker 2016, my eyes spotted a photo that tug at my heart as a former dancer. How many recitals and performances had I peeked from behind the curtain to see my folks, loved ones, friends or audience size? These young ballet dancers are no different. Perhaps this is the last performance they have with The Nutcracker, or their 10th, it still is such an important night for any of these girls. So, it was a warm and fuzzy moment for me to reminisce over.
In any event, Lisa chose with me some beautiful color combinations. First, we sent her some color swatches and wanting a bright new color pallet, we decided on mango orange, raspberry pink, apple green, caribbean blue, tiffany blue, teal and adriatic aqua, with some rust, purples and iris colors in between. My favorite color for this performance was our new color RAZZLEBERRY and honestly, these Nutcracker costumes elicited the exact reaction that Lisa was hoping to achieve….. the audience responded not only favorably but ranted about the Party Scene Dancer dresses long after The Nutcracker was over. Thank you Lisa once again for sharing these with our staff. We love getting every photo!
