|Scene from the RNZBallet's "The Nutcracker" Nov 2010|
He loves his ballet and is making it his career. Last year he had a part in the Royal New Zealand Ballet's "The Nutcracker" and had an absolute ball. That was over a month of rehersals and performances. He was very pleased with himself as he was part of the A cast. He will be auditioning for a part in Sleeping Beauty near the end of this year.
So it's another year of classes, rehersals, shows, exams and making costumes.
During his classes I get alot of craft work done, last year it was knitting, crocheting and tatting, this year I am wanting to do some filet crochet, I have a lot of vintage patterns from the 1890's to the 1950's. Good stuff.
Oh yeah, in the top photo, I made Salem's costume that he is wearing.
