What do most people think of when you say Christmas? Tinsel, presents, singing, a guy in a big red suit? That's most people; as for me, the first thing that comes to mind is the ballet, but not just any ballet: "The Nutcracker. " Based on the story by E.T.A. Hoffman and set to music by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky, this ballet is a Christmas tradition. "The Nutcracker" is about a young girl who dreams, on Christmas Eve, of a journey in a kind of candy land. She travels with a life-size version of her Christmas gift - a German-style nutcracker doll.

It's a hectic Saturday afternoon inside the City Ballet School at Hagerstown's City Centre. In an upstairs studio, children bump into each other as they scurry from one room to the next with costumes in hand. Parents help set up stage props, the artistic director tweaks a sequence of dance steps while  the music of Tchaikovsky plays in the background. It's December and another "Nutcracker" is being polished and assembled, piece by tinselly piece. There is attention to detail, enough hard work to make the floor shake and a commitment to creating magic.
