Nutcracker Ben*

This was the adorable Ben at Fairyland yesterday while the Oakland ballet did a mini Nutcracker performance. It was his first time seeing ballet and I think he’s a natural.

Hi, I’m Andrea

On this blog you’ll be learning with me how to use our voices, share our creative superpowers and live life in full color.

As an artist, photographer, life coach + mentor, I’m redefining what it means to be a SUPERHERO — ‘cause in my world, it’s got nothing to do with capes, spandex or sidekicks and everything to do with tenderness, intuition & baby steps of bravery.

    Aw, sweet Ben! 🙂 I think he’s a natural, too!

  2. Jill Salahub

    Absolutely! He is so cute! “I got the music in me!”

  3. kathleen Warner

    Oh my goodness…lovedddd this…nothing like the freedom to truly dance when the spirit and the music moves you!

  4. Jen in Ohio

    Coolest. Kid. Ever.

  5. nina

    Love him!

  6. Tina

    Oh the sweetness of it. I love how he really never takes his eyes off her. Even when he twirls his eyes are on her as soon as physically possible.

  7. Kat

    OMG that was fantastic!
    He shoulda been the one on stage, he’s a natural for sure.

  8. Stephanie Williamson

    Yes! So cute!
    The world cannot have too many Boys Who Dance. My boys saw the Nutcracker many times when they were little. Perhaps that is one reason that they are still uninhibited dancers as teenagers.

    Have a fantastic Holiday!

    Beautiful The joy of dancing is something that I miss. Don’t let him lose that!

    Brilliant. I wish we could spend each and every day–regardless of age–delighting in whatever it is that makes our hearts sing.

  12. Beth

    so happy! pure bliss and joy – may he always have that in his life…
    hugs to you,
    Beth 🙂

  13. Denise Abatzis

    So, so precious! I love how he got a little dizzy at the end.

  14. Jennifer

    oh my goodness my heart is swooning! he is simply delightful. there is so much that i can learn from watching him. he is right there in the moment feeling. he doesn’t care what others are thinking or saying, he is listening to the sound of his own voice and doing what he feels in his heart. love, love, love this. just what i needed to see today. xoxo

  15. Dr. S

    It makes so much sense, given his love of music! Will he take classes?

  16. Yolanda

    Oh now that is contagious joy! My four-year-old (who just saw the ballet herself last week), asked to watch it three times. She said, “I love that the boy is dancing, too!”

  17. susanne
