The Nutcracker

When: Nov. 27-29 2009

Around the age of 12, I began dancing in ballet pointe shoes. For a girl of that age, the role of Sugar Plum Fairy in The Nutcracker is the role to aspire to. Unfortunately, you first have to get past all the years of blisters and bleeding toes. I never made it. Today, the San Diego Ballet and the Colorado Springs Philharmonic present the holiday classic at 2:30 and 8 p.m. at the Pikes Peak Center (190 S. Cascade Ave.). Can't make it? There are $24 to $46 shows Friday and Sunday as well. Look for me there — reliving my dreams, pain-free. — Kirsten Akens

Price: $26
