The Snowflakes in their gorgeous turquoise dresses line up to lace up each others bodice backs. When the dance season ended, I volunteered to wash 2 garment rails of costumes. My living room was like the dressing room of the ballet as the dresses and costumes hung to dry for several days.

From 2013 performance of the Nutcracker Ballet by Coasting Along Theatre Society, Sechelt, BC.
