Shhh, let’s tip toe through the dark forest with wands held out as torches!
Imagination and play is a wonderful way of encouraging young children to enjoy dance & the delights of ballet. It’s no coincidence that fairies and ballet often go hand in hand when it comes to inspiring young children to dance. There’s a magical quality about ballet: the beautiful costumes, the storytelling and the other worldly feel of watching dancers move so gracefully, so the magical world of fairies is an ideal theme to introduce children to creative movement and basic ballet steps. With that in mind the Twinklesteps character was developed as an inspiring role model to encourage younger children to dance. The Twinklesteps sparkly play shoe is in progress, as is the Twinklesteps ballet shoe which will inspire and motivate young dancers to stretch right to the end of their toes by lighting up when the foot points correctly.
