ON POINT(E): Senior Melina Tanuwidjaja beams as she performs to Tchaikovsky’s “Waltz of the Snowflakes.”

The show winds down with the true classic of classics, a ballet performed en pointe to Tchaikovsky’s “Waltz of the Snowflakes” from “The Nutcracker.” Pointe is one of the most difficult dance techniques, where a dancer must support their entire body weight on the tips of their toes. It takes years of training to reach this caliber, and the four dancers in this performance executed their movements with seemingly effortless grace. If you were looking to view the pinnacle origin of dance, you would have to look no further.
