Northern Ballet- The Hare and the Tortoise

January 2016


Following the children's fascination in the beautiful hare sculpture at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, we were lucky enough to be offered the chance to work with the Northern Ballet, focusing on the story of the 'Hare and the Tortoise.'  Children from Reception Class and Year 2 took part in dance workshops throughout the day. 


The children learnt how to create movements to represent the feelings and actions of the characters and by the end of the session were telling the story alongside the dance artist. 


Following this lots of work was done in class around the story and a big group of parents and children then enjoyed a trip to the Lawrence Batley theatre to watch the Northern Ballet's performance of the 'Hare and the Tortoise'.
