James Luna could dance the “Nutcracker Suite” in his sleep. That’s how it is for most seasoned professional ballet dancers, who can rack up as many as 30 performances of the beloved Tchaikovsky favorite in a single Christmas season.

That’s because, for a few brief moments, the La Crescenta resident will share the stage with 5-year-old Ginger Duncan.

As you read this column I am exploring the Connemara region of County Galway in Ireland. It is spring and the wildflowers are in bloom and the newborn lambs are snowy white as they jump straight up into the air like their legs are spring-loaded. I will have much to tell you about when I return, but for now I’m so enjoying this special getaway.
