Swanson 5th Grader Evelyn Soyka will once again be performing in the Milwaukee Ballet's production of The Nutcracker this season.  This is her 4th year dancing with the Milwaukee Ballet, and her 3rd year in The Nutcracker, this time as a toy soldier.  Three long months of rehearsals and performances are dedicated to this production, but being a part of the magic on stage with the live orchestra, beautiful costumes and professional dancers is such an honor and highlight for Evelyn.
