Did You Know? The skaters at the beginning of Nutcracker wear brogue style boots. They have a thick dummy blade attached which conceals small wheels, so they can then glide across the stage and it looks like they are ice skating. The dancers get to rehearse in these skater boots in the studio before performances.
