"Chocolate" Ballet Variation Workshop (From The Nutcracker)

It's that time of year again...Nutcracker season!!! Join Desiree in her home studio on Zoom for 4 consecutive Tuesday evenings and visit the Land of the Sweets (from The Nutcracker - Act II) and learn the "Chocolate from Spain" dance. The choreography is solely Desiree's but inspired by the New York City Ballet / Balanchine version. To get a feel for the overall style of the dance click here! There will be lots of releves, jumps, and turns in the variation...and of course it'll be "small space friendly!"
