#Ballet Moves

Kindergarten, Prep – Year 2
Bringing a narrative to life.

Set in the Australian bush, The Little Green Road to Fairyland is a vintage story brought to life by Queensland Ballet in 2019. The Ballet Moves workshop develops literacy and uses the Australian animals and landscapes in the story to introduce movement qualities, shape, size and level in a playful and creative way.

Please contact Queensland Ballet if you are interested in adapting the Ballet Moves workshop to a specific narrative you are studying with your students.
