We did this hot pink Nutcracker dress for a young ballet dancer who was chosen to be Clara in her Dance School's production. We will never forget this young lady. Usually a mom calls us on the phone to talk about and order her daughter's costume. Not this young lady, no sir. We were so impressed that afterwards, when we got ready to ship her order, we called her mom to express how utterly blown away by her then high school junior's poise and maturity. Later we found out that this young dancer was on her way to college for a very prestigious school's dance program. And it all starts with ballet school. She choose a style that we have now adapted to be in The Nutcracker Collection called Style 703.
Well anyhow, this dress was made for Lisa's Dance Studio in Marblehead, MA. She (the owner) was so impressed that the following year, she added 10 more. Then throughout the years, we designed a few more each season based on this style, for danceers of different heights
