The Russian Dance

‘Candy Canes’




leaps suspended

high above the stage

lively candy canes

share their talents

spreading joy

and bright



More everything Nutcracker!

    talking of smiles, I am smiling now. I’ve been tracking back through your Nutcracker blogs. Great to catch up even a little, and I promise to be back in the New Year to catch up a lot. 🙂 Have a wonderful ‘Nutty’ Christmas and New Year. xxPenxx

    Reblogged this on Words4jp's Blog and commented:

    Next variation – The Russian Dance. Again, depending on the production (there are many) the Russian Dance can be frolicking candy canes or a Russian Cossack or any other eclectic interpretation by a creative storyteller/choreographer. The production I performed featured a solo male dressed as a Russian Cossack dancer. Everything about this pieces exudes explosion and pure joy.
