Albany - The Albany Ballet Theater takes a little time to go over steps and put the finishing touches on this year's performance of the Nutcracker. Artistic director, Carol Mathis the dancers put a lot of effort into entertaining South Georgia each year.

Then, it was time for the show. Dancers say performing in the Nutcracker isn't easy. It takes a lot of hard work, sweat and sore feet to make the show a success.
