The Nutcracker production is an inspiring holiday tradition that provides a showcase for NWSA’s dance department each year, spotlighting students on both the high school and college levels. But this year’s show is particularly exciting, as the guest artist performing the role of Sugar Plum Fairy is none other than our own Caroline Betancourt, a 2007 NWSA High School grad who now dances with Louisville Ballet. “It is so gratifying to see the beautiful dancer Caroline has become,” says Ruth Wiesen, an NWSA dance faculty member and the director of the Thomas Armour Youth Ballet, which partners in the show. “Caroline first performed in our Nutcracker when she was just a little girl, and look how far her excellent training and hard work have carried her. When we see her dance, it brings tears to our eyes.”
