Fairy Tale Dance

Dance Age 5-12

Delve into a world of fantasy as your students explore Little Red Riding Hood, a Queensland Ballet production that showcases a new interpretation of the classic fairy tale.

With this exclusive backstage pass, your students will receive tips from theatre professionals on how to create their very own performance using everyday objects found in the classroom or at home. Go in-depth with acclaimed Choreographer Lucas Jervies and Costume Designer Noelene Hill as they explain how to use gestures, movements and clothing to establish characters and learn from specialist Composer, Tristan Parr and Lighting Designer, Benjamin Cistern as they use different styles of music and lighting to establish mood and drama.

Inspire your students to create their very own performance, giving them different roles in their productions and watch as they develop skills in self-expression through literacy learning and the elements of dance.
