“I think I’m going to stay in the ballet until I’m twenty.”
-Karen Gabay’s daughter, Kalena, who makes her Nutcracker debut as a mouse this year

For those of you who don’t know, Karen has been with the ballet since forever, and I remember the very first time we saw her. (One of my male colleagues melted immediately … that smile, those eyes … well … you couldn’t resist her!) While she doesn’t really know us at all (or not me at least), we all feel as if we know her, as we’ve watched her grow up and go through life. How fun to see her daughter now!
