Isabella Gregg (10) and Olivia Gregg (12) are the daughters of James and Linda Gregg of Phoenix, Ariz. Isabella will dance the role of Clara and Olivia will star as Sugar Plum Fairy in this traditional holiday ballet. This is the first time that the sisters have both staring roles. The girls are students at Dance Studio 111, Ahwahtukee, Ariz. Both Isabella and Olivia have participated in The Nutcracker for several years. The girls are accomplished dancers and have won many awards and scholarships for their performances in dance competitions which are held throughout the year.
It is definitely a Gregg family "Nutcracker" this year as younger brothers, Porter and Cooper, will participate in the party scene.
The children are grandchildren of Buck and Marlys Petersen of Reinbeck. Betty Petersen is great grandmother. Paternal grandparents are Russell and Jean Gregg of Grant, Neb. and Jane Frances of Thatcher, Ariz.
The Petersens are looking forward to seeing their grandchildren perform this year.
