Jacob’s Canadian Christmas Concert

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.

This video doesn’t exist

And here is the ‘Waltz of the Snowflakes’ from the Nutcracker Ballet (just for comparison’s sake):

About David and Lam

A smitten couple and loving parents in our early 40s. We have lived in 3 different countries together. We dream of living in a fourth country together after our children grow up. We love long walks in the woods, climbing mountains, boating, traveling, reading, and being together. Both David and Lam are old souls who love quietness and meaningful conversations in which we ponder the truth and mysteries of life as well as discuss philosophical and ethical matters. We especially like to enjoy the small pleasures of daily life.
