A 16-year-old junior at the Baltimore School for the Arts, Nick Sipe has literally grown up — about 6 inches this past year — gaining in enthusiasm, confidence and strength as a dancer. He will perform as the prince in three main performances of the Nutcracker Ballet. When he came to the School for the Arts two years ago, he felt too small in his ballet classes. He was 5'3" and is now almost 5'9" which has made a universe of difference in his ability to partner girls.
