Hi. Last Thursday was Jacob’s Christmas Concert at his school, the Canadian International School. His class performed one piece from Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker – ‘Waltz of the Snowflakes’. Apparently, this performance was given in the ‘Canadian’ style of the ballet…whatever that means.
We were extremely proud of him because he only started at the school two weeks ago and has never been one for this kind of thing. This is the first time he’s actually done all the dancing, etc. he’s supposed to do along with the other kids!
Below is the video of Jacob and his class performing the Waltz, replete with silver tinsel and plenty of fake snow. Jacob is the fourth one in after the teacher and is in the back corner most of the piece.
And here is the ‘Waltz of the Snowflakes’ from the Nutcracker Ballet (just for comparison’s sake):
