babyballet® Bradford North held their annual Starmakers show at Beckfoot school in Bingley where toddlers and young children graduating from babyballet® classes could showcase how well they had learned to dance.
Over 80 babyballet® stars aged between 3 and 6 years old charmed excited family members and friends on Sunday 10th June 2018 for a superbly performed, professional pantomime style dance show.
babyballet® characters Twinkle and Teddy the adorable bears, Flutterstar the fairy, Chuck the cowboy and Grandad Jack, the King of the Castle in the Sky joined all of the children on stage in this wonderful performance, where they thoroughly enjoyed dancing for their audience.
In Twinkle’s Dream, Flutterstar the Fairy gave her magic wishes to go anywhere she desired. She chose the circus first to revel in the juggling, flips and twists of the performers, then Grandad Jack’s Castle in the Sky to catch up with the fairies and princesses who live there. When Twinkle’s tummy was rumbling, she transported them to the magical food land made of all her favourites for a delicious feast before going to the sea to explore what wonderful creatures lived under there. After drying off, they settled down for a film in the best seats in the cinema with popcorn and then with one wish to go, Twinkle tried tap dancing. When Twinkle woke up, she realised her friends were all still there and that dreams could come true so everyone celebrated in the finale!
The audience were delighted as they clapped and even danced along at times!
Heather Baines, principal of babyballet® Bradford North noted, “I am so so proud of every single babyballet star! They did amazing dancing with a huge smile on their faces. Their hard work in class really shone through and there was a definite tear in my eye!”
One proud parent, Caroline , said , “Georgie was quite upset before her baby ballet performance as she had hurt her hand that morning at home and she was a bit nervous about the show, but as soon as she went on stage she was smiling and dancing with her friends enjoying herself! She was buzzing for the rest of the day! Thank you for putting on the show it has given Georgie a much needed confidence boost and some amazing memories”
babyballet® star, Georgie, summed up the experience by saying, “I’m going to take Twinkle to nursery today because I’m a baby ballet star!”.
