I cannot seem to get over the theme of memories so I am once again focusing on Christmas memories but through the eyes of a child. Christmas is so special to me as an adult, and I truly believe that has to do with Christmas being made so special throughout my childhood. Here is my December 11th favorite:
What is your favorite Christmas memory from childhood? I started ballet at the age of 6 and continued on until I was 17. When I moved to Texas at the age of 8, I joined a dance school that was involved in the Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker every year. I was an angel my first year and a Spanish divertissement my last year, my favorite part. Dancing in a professional ballet with ballerinas from Russia, the capital of ballet, was an incredible experience that I was fortunate to have 8 years in a row. I did not go on to dance professionally, but I will always have a special place in my heart for dance, especially my time dancing with the Moscow Ballet.
