Such a wonderful introduction to the ballet and the theatre in general.Canberra Times on Storytime Ballet
My daughter (3) loved the production, the story was interactive which was great and didn’t go too long. Well worth it.
I wanted to take my daughter to the ballet but was worried it would cost too much and go on for too long (most shows seem to be 2 hours long minimum). ....so I was glad to find this show. All done and dusted in an hour and didn’t break the bank. Oh, and now my daughter wants to be a ballet dancer ❤️Storytime Ballet Audience Member
