Tracy Jones, Colorado Ballet Soloist
When I was 12 years old, I was in The Royal Ballet's Nutcracker where I played the part of a mouse. This production will always hold a special place in my heart as it was the first Nutcracker that I performed in. To this day I can still remember most of the choreography.
