The Nutcracker | Pointe of View

Every Monday, I feature an image and backstory from my Pointe of View series. For more, view all these ballerina posts or visit the Pointe of View store.

Exactly one year ago yesterday, I did the very first ballerina shoot of my Pointe of View series here in Oakland with Sharon.

It was only fitting that I celebrate today by watching Sharon perform in the Oakland Ballet Company’s Nutcracker. This was my second Nutcracker of the season, after having watched the San Francisco Ballet earlier this month. The Paramount Theater is an awesome monument to art deco style.

I snuck a couple photos of the show.

After the show, with Kirsten, Wil, and Faith.

And of course with the ballerina herself, Sharon!

They were already changing the sign by the time I left!

Happy Holidays everyone! And happy anniversary to the Pointe of View series. More to come.
