Today I got super inspired by The Nutcracker. Why – you ask?
1. Because I’m the nanny to a 3 year old and she’s obsessed! I was reading her the book today and that’s when I remembered… there’s an Arabian inspired dance – in the story, the ballerina represents Arabian coffee lol. I feel like my obsession is starting to make sense now – I loved this ballet when I was little.
2. The beautiful images are great for costume inspiration alone if nothing else.
3. I love anything that has to do with holiday spirit!
I have also made a youtube playlist of some incredible versions of this dance. They’re each different and incredibly beautiful – I would say the third one in the list is the most unique. Anyway…take a look![youtube https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLjrrLz1h3298DpbDRU5wXbqX3-3BJ-2rQ]
Let me know what you think + Happy Holidays!
