The Magic Word – new ballet show for children

The Twinklesteps team are delighted to hear that, following their sell out shows last year, Let’s All Dance returns with another gorgeous, classical ballet for children: ‘The Magic Word’. Their last ballet, The Princess & the Frog, was a magical fairy tale ballet with the theme of friendship at its core. Find out what more about ‘The Magic Word’…

In a secret, magical forest lives the beautiful Forest Queen. In the summer the forest is warm and the Queen loves dancing in the dappled sunlight. But in the winter she becomes cold and hungry.

One day she decides to visit the Forest Elf on the other side of the wood, as she knows he has food and a warm cloak.

But the Queen is rather spoilt and does not know how to ask nicely. Once she learns The Magic Word she discovers the beauty of sharing and the joys of true friendship.

Children will be enchanted by the magical dancers, stunning costumes and crystal clear story-telling. With themes of kindness, good manners and friendship this is a heart-warming tale for all ages. The show lasts approximately 45 minutes including a meet the dancers session afterwards.

So far there are tickets on sale at The Riverside Studios, London for 27th – 29th June. If you book tickets before the 28th Feb & then email info@lets-all-dance.co.uk quoting “Valentine Magic Word” you’ll receive an autographed poster. Book here.

Northern Ballet bringing classic children’s tales to life

It’s so lovely to see Northern Ballet putting on ballet productions for young children. Their first ballet aimed especially at children aged 0-8 years was The Ugly Duckling and this October they are launching the Three Little Pigs. The performances are short, colourful and fun, bringing children’s classic tales to young audiences in a new way – through ballet and music. We’re huge supporters of making ballet accessible to younger children and new audiences and what better to do it than through tales all children know and love. Let us know if you go to see it.
