Northern Ballet’s Tortoise & the Hare races onto the big screen as part of our fantastic season of interactive ballets for children, narrated by Anita Rani. She will even show some of the moves from the ballet with the help of the loveable characters.
Once upon a time there was a speedy Hare who would never stop talking about how fast he could run. Sick of being teased for his slowness, Tortoise challenged him to a race. No one thought he could win, but life is full of surprises!
With playful characters and spellbinding music, this adorable ballet is sure to have your little ones dancing all the way home with excitement!
PLUS: Before each of the ballets, meet Elephant, Monkey or Polar Bear from the animated series Jungle Beat and join in their hilarious adventures via a 5 minute episode before the main event begins.
Northern Ballet’s Bite Sized Ballets are the perfect way for your little ones in primary school, pre school or even younger to enjoy the magic of dance, music and storytelling on the big screen!
