The magic of the Nutcracker

A Review of The Nutcraker at the BFM 

As soon as the lights fade, the first notes of Tchaikovsky’s ballet resonate through the auditorium. Spreading around like a warm hug, the timeless melody slowly creates magic. It does not take too long before the show steals people’s hearts with an incredibly talented leading woman in the role of Clara.

The hour and a half ballet asks for strong technique and passion from the ballerina who embodies the grace and the naivety of the child. Her feet are painting the stage with her pointes shoes, which makes the show unforgettable.

In the Land of Sweets, the pink and white costumes in front of the beautifully painted set give another dimension to the partition. To the point that the cold and the windiness of Geneva disappeared that 1st of December at the bâtiment des forces motrices, because of the classical ballet of St-Petersburg. 

And children went home with magic in their eyes.

Passionate about education since the age of 12, I got curious about the integration of new technologies within an educational environment while I was subbing in Geneva's primary schools. My curiosity grew so much that I completed a master degree in Teaching and Learning technologies at the University of Geneva. For my thesis, I decided to challenge myself by creating a program that tackles the issues of teaching history for high schools. The goal of my ten-class program was to introduce the main events and issues of the French Revolution to second-year students, with the use of a commercial video game.

This idea of creating content outside the box comes from my deep love for arts, specifically dancing and writing. Trained as a dancer in New York City and Geneva, I use my sensibility to create original content. As a writer, my goal is to defend the rights and the liberty of everyone.

Artistic, hard-working and passionate, I am up to any new challenges!
