The Nutcracker Act II Pas De Deux

The Sugar Plum Fairy and Her Cavalier





on stage right.

they stand prepared.

he extends his arm –

she gently takes his hand

stepping onto perfect pointes.

gracefully and delicately

a majestic pas de deux unfolds…

dreams of sugar plums become her desire…..



A long time ago.....

My first year as Clara
December 1978

In 1974, the Cincinnati Ballet Company premiered The Nutcracker.  For two years, I sat in the audience – mesmerized.  In Summer of 1976, I changed ballet schools and that December I was cast as a party girl and bunny.  Many little girls and boys see more than just a ballet while sitting in the audience of a production of The Nutcracker – they discover their heart’s true desire.

      Thank you. The grand pas de deux from The Nutcracker is truly one of the most beautiful pieces ever created and composed. The music is perfect and the choreography timeless. Though there are newer versions popping up all the time, the Marius Petipa version from the late 1800’s is timeless and still performed today.
