Artist Statement

Colorado Ballet principal ballerina Maria Mosina performs the "Dance of the Sugarplum Fairy" from "The Nutcracker." Maria's pointe shoes create musical audio, as she dances along the sprung floor at the Colorado Ballet studios in Denver. Her tutu ruffles as she delicately glides across the space.

Anne O'Connor, Colorado Ballet's director of education and community partnerships, provides audio description of the dance to explain what is visually happening as Maria pirouettes, as well as giving vocalization to the ballerina's expressions and emotions.
