STATS: 17, Evans High School senior

WHAT: Veteran Nutcracker ballerina

HER STORY: Haley enjoys the experience of dancing in The New Nutcracker, the Columbia County Ballet's version of the famed Christmas classic.

Her favorite production was when she danced as Clara in 2002.

"It was my first major role, of course it was really exciting," she said.

Haley has been dancing since she was 4. Her family has seen the show seven years in a row, but it's something Haley never tires of.

"How can you get tired of it?," she said. "It is the epitome of Christmastime."
