Dancer the Tap Dancer
Dancer is one of the more laid back reindeer of Santa’s team and was named Dancer because as a child all Dancer ever wanted to do was dance. Legend has it that he actually used to put on a dance recital every night for all the other reindeer. And he was good at it too. The sound of his hoofs hitting the stage were like music to Santa’s ears. Santa even wanted Dancer to go to Broadway because was such a good tap dancer, but Dancer refused because the only thing he ever wanted to do was to pull Santa’s sleigh.
At first Santa was not too crazy about letting Dancer try out for his sleigh team. Dancer was always fooling around and Santa did not think he was serious enough for the important Christmas Eve voyage. But Dancer was determined to prove Santa wrong. Dancer trained and trained and trained some more until his flying ability was unmatched. In one fateful day while all the reindeer were playing reindeer games, Dancer took off into the sky and out flew Comet, Prancer, and almost Dasher. Santa knew at that moment that Dancer had changed and immediately invited him onto his team.
While Dancer still enjoys putting on shows for the rest of his fellow reindeer and elves, he also takes being part of Santa’s team very seriously and works hard all year round to be as strong and fast as he can. Dancer’s favorite elf is Heidi who will often come out to the barn and play her flute for him to help lull him to sleep. Dancer’s favorite color is Teal, his favorite food is Crème brulee and his favorite cookies are vanilla wafers. Also, while not many people know this, but Dancer is actually twin brothers with another one of Santa’s famous reindeer, Prancer.
