Today’s video is a wonderful seven-minute discussion of “The Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy” and why it has become so iconic during the Christmas season.
The last minute of the video is a commercial for its sponsor. Be forewarned!

So awesome! I love that there is a special instrument that inspired this piece. As well as the fact that giving key roles to children has given the ballet a seasonal place for families, year after year, as they enjoy watching their children learn and grow in dance. As a children’s writer, this is so inspiring for me. So lovely!
