flygirl Posted September 10, 2004 Report Share Posted September 10, 2004 I'm soo relieved that my 13 yo daughter decided not to audition this year. I obviously cannot jump up and down in front of her so I am tellin you! She has just started dancing in the next level at her studio...now she goes 6 days/week. She just decided that since she was so busy with school and dance and her part would be so small anyway (too tall for "important" parts anymore) that she would pass. Also, she did not want to miss any of her regular ballet classes. Trust me, the memories of the other 4 Nutcrackers are beyond priceless to all of us. I'm not exaggerating when I say that Nutcracker is usually the highlight of her year. However, the rehearsal/performance schedule is so disruptive to the rest of the family from September to January that I cannot help but be secretly relieved . I would drive to the moon for her but I really think it is a sign of maturity on her part that she is willing to move on.... Quote Link to comment
