The National Ballet of Canada - "The Nutcracker" Rehearsal

Published December 19th, 2012

Last week I was lucky enough to attend a rehearsal for The National Ballet of Canada's production of "The Nutcracker". Having seen the show, it was fascinating to see all the hard work that goes into preparing for this yearly tradition.



Dancers are a wonderful subject for photography - they have amazing poise and grace, and they're so much fun to watch!



I had a great time photographing this rehearsal and I'd love to do it again.
