As a mere lamb, Dolores appeared in a ballet school production of The Nutcracker as Dancing Pistachio #2. It wasn’t much of a part, but she made the most of it by sending Dancing Pistachio #1 into the orchestra pit with a well-timed grand battement to the rear. It was a portent of things to come. Dolores knew that she was destined, some day, to move into the spotlight—to dance the featured role of the Sugarplum Fairy. That day has arrived. The tiara is ready. Swathed in skirts that sparkle and ripple, she is a vision prepared to dance in your head. In your living room. On top of the bar. Anywhere, really. Just get anything breakable out of the way first.
