11-year-old Chloe Willis of Oxford is playing the lead role of Marie in this year's 'Nutcracker' production.

Chloe Willis, age 11, has wanted to be a dancer ever since she was 3 years old, when she saw a performance by The Rockettes on a Netflix Christmas special.

She’s been taking dance lessons ever since, and this year, the young ballerina from Oxford is dancing the lead role of Marie in the Alabama Ballet production of “The Nutcracker.”
