To celebrate Book Week, Queensland Ballet visited kindergartens and childcare centres across Brisbane to share the wonder of storytelling and movement, through delightful play-based workshops as part of the 2019 Premier’s Reading Challenge.
By bringing to life stories from the Premier’s Reading Challenge early childhood book list, these carefully crafted, interactive workshops ignite imaginations while inspiring a passion for reading and dance in two to five-year old’s.
Each visit includes a 30-minute story-themes class modelled on our popular Petit Pointers program, developed to stimulate creativity and confidence in children under five years. Delivered in partnership with the Department of Education.
Book Week 2019 Workshops were based on the following books from the Premier’s Reading Challenge Early Childhood book list:
Collecting Sunshine (by Rachel Flynn, ill. Tamsin Ainslie)
The Amazing A – Z Thing (by Sally Morgan, ill. Bronwyn Bancroft)
Splosh for the Billabong (by Ros Moriarty, ill. Balarinji)”
