Old stories come to life
Friday, 28th May, 2010
Dynamique Music and Dance will present a ballet production this weekend at Theatre 44 that is bound to entertain young and old.
The production will feature junior ballet students aged 5 to 12 years old.
There will be two short stories - "Little Red Riding Hood" and "A Child's Dream".
The first is the traditional story of Little Red who is going to visit her grandmother. On the way she meets the cunning wolf and a hunter.
Throughout the journey there are also appearances from forest fairies, animals, and Little Red's friends.
The second story is about a young girl who is tucked into bed by her older sister and whilst asleep, all her toys come to life.
This has harlequin dolls, clowns, jacks in the box, Raggedy Anne dolls and toy soldiers.
The production is a wonderful opportunity for the Dynamique Music and Dance students to experience an enjoyable aspect of ballet through playing various characters, said Le'Neta Edwards, the principal of Dynamique Music and Dance.
She said the children had thoroughly enjoyed the rehearsals.
"It's going to be a lively performance with lots of action, colour and wonderful costumes," she said.
"It really is a production for the whole family as children will love the variety of characters.
"The show will also be a wonderful way of introducing younger children to the wonderful world of ballet."
The performance will be held at Theatre 44 on Saturday at 7pm and Sunday at 2pm.
Tickets are now available from BH Music for $15 and $10 for concession card holders.
Tickets will also be available at the door, although Saturday night's show is almost sold out. Refreshments will be available at interval.
