Dance Of The Sugar Plum Fairy- Have the dancers from the last dance either fall asleep on stage or have them go off stage like they are going to bed. Dim the lights and have a pointe student do the Dance Of The Sugar Plum Fairy from the Nutcracker Suite. As she dances and waves her magic wand, have the sun rise to Christmas morning.
