Back in November you may remember me talking about a Q&A with Dancing with the Stars Pros/Juniors Alan Bersten, Brandon Armstrong and Gleb Savchenko in Gleb’s Pro Dance LA studio. While we were there we also got a dance lesson on a piece from the Nutcracker and the Four Realms film.
Learning the dance lesson from the 3 pros was so much fun. They were supportive along with making us laugh during the lesson. After learning the lessons we split into 3 groups to practice and perform in front of everyone. My team leader was Brandon Armstrong for the Candyland team.
We added a touch to the beginning of the dance and then it was time to perform. Our team did well but if you could imagine what a clumpsy duckling looks like then that is what I looked like. Or at least felt like. Take a look at our performance and you be the judge. I’m in the front row with the adidas shirt on.

About the Movie
All Clara (Mackenzie Foy) wants is a key – a one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a box that holds a priceless gift. A golden thread, presented to her at godfather Drosselmeyer’s (Morgan Freeman) annual holiday party, leads her to the coveted key—which promptly disappears into a strange and mysterious parallel world. It’s there that Clara encounters a soldier named Phillip (Jayden Fowora-Knight), a gang of mice and the regents who preside over three Realms: Land of Snowflakes, Land of Flowers and Land of Sweets. Clara and Phillip must brave the ominous Fourth Realm, home to the tyrant Mother Ginger (Helen Mirren), to retrieve Clara’s key and hopefully return harmony to the unstable world. Starring Keira Knightley as the Sugar Plum Fairy, Disney’s new holiday feature film “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” is directed by Lasse Hallström and Joe Johnston, and inspired by E.T.A. Hoffmann’s classic tale.
THE NUTCRACKER AND THE FOUR REALMS will arrive on on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray™ and DVD Jan. 29, 2019!
