The little boy in me snickers every time I hear the word nutcracker, since I picture in my head an injury to a male's nut sack. In this case, it's the iconic holiday dance and music production.
The area that a performance can be staged in is very small on our set, so viewers got a short preview of the production with a small cast of dancers.
The young ladies that do the dancing are very talented, and dancers are similar to gymnasts -- they are thin and muscular, plus graceful and spectacular at what they do.
I shot some pictures of the segment while they were on:
|If I tried to do this pose|
I'd have ten smashed toes.
|There was a lizard that peed on the floor|
once that appeared on the show.
I hope that's not the same
spot where they put their hands.
|She looks very "hoppy"|
