On Friday BalletForte, a nonprofit ballet company in Fort Bend County, will present its 22nd annual performance of “The Nutcracker,” which, by the way, will feature more than 100 local dancers, some of whom are from right here in our community.
For 14-year-old Dylin Waldorf, being included in this year’s performance is a dream come true:
“This is my very first time to perform in the Nutcracker and I’m so excited,” said the Greatwood dancer who will perform the role of Party Girl and Petit Fleur.
“Performing on pointe has been a dream of mine since I started ballet at 3 years old.”
Although she has been dancing for four years and spent the past two summers studying with the Houston Ballet Summer Intensive program, fellow Greatwood dancer Anna Thaxton, 12, will also perform for the first time as a BalletForte company member in The Nutcracker.
