Nutcracker Video Contest: Get Your Clara On
Level with us: we know you've put on some slick socks and recreated The Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies on a hardwood floor at one point in your life. It may or may not even be on VHS in your parents' attic. But now it's time to spread the Nutcracker love to YouTube. The SF Ballet is running a pretty inspired marketing campaign to drum up excitement for every girl's favorite ballet. It's a video contest for the best 65-second creative representation of The Nutcracker. So gather some snowflakes, a flexible/high-jumping boy or two and maybe a large stuffed bear and take out your Clara-envy on video. The winners get some pretty sweet prizes, including a trip for four to Aspen (!), a weekend getaway at The Fairmont and tickets to SF Ballet performances. Check out the official site for details.
