The Nutcracker Act II – Dance of the Mirlitons

December 20, 2014 at 4:51 pm 3 comments

We are about halfway through Act II of our trip down The Nutcracker lane. Next variation is the Dance of the Mirlitons, or as we fondly referred to it as the Reed Pipes or Reeds, for short. I had the pleasure of being a reed. It was a challenging variation due to the fact that I was one of four dancers performing behind a lead dancer – we had to move together as a single unit. We were not ‘attached’ like the Four Little Swans, but together nonetheless. In other words, there was no room for error.
