Personal Note

Yesterday night, as I finished playing the mini Nutcracker music game, I realized I would not be able to describe my feelings - it is beautiful, touching, fun and educational! I studied ballet from 5 to 14 years old and, coincidentally, my debut on stage was precisely with Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker, which two-folded the experience.
