If your only dance experience is the Nutcracker, it will be a shock; hopefully shocking in a good way.—Mikhail Baryshnikov

Enjoy this scene from the Nutcracker Ballet—Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker and the Snow Scene Grand Pas de Deux featuring acclaimed principal dancer Alexandra Elagina as Masha (aka Clara) and Nutcracker Prince Anatolie Ustimov in the climax of Act I of the 2010 family holiday performance.

Nathalie and I co-authored the book, Lord Help Me to Flourish, a Coloring Devotional. In there you’ll find more of her original artwork, and inspiring life stories I wrote to encourage your heart.

Holiday Blessings!

  1. Hi Leila, Thank you for sharing my painting tutorial! I remember the first time you came to my house to paint “Ballerina on the Beach”. A friendship was born that night! God has been at work through us since! You also saw how many dancer paintings and little illustrations of of ballerina I created over the years. I think I love painting dancers and women in motion because I love freedom of expression and dance to me is the ultimate way to truly express yourself and letting go. I hope people will paint with me! I think I love painting dancers so much because I approach painting the way a dancer does her dance. “I express myself through a movement in painting using vivid colors that depict free treatment of form, resulting in vibrant and decorative effect in my art. By the way, this is the definition of Fauvism! I hope to continue help women flourish through my painting and coloring tutorials. Thanks again Leila for sharing my video!
