Bal­le­rina brings Nut­cracker to life in read­ing

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

THE Vic­to­ria Park Li­brary’s youngest guests were treated to a very spe­cial sto­ry­time on Novem­ber 10 when pro­fes­sional teach­ing artist and West Aus­tralian Bal­let ed­u­ca­tion of­fi­cer Ni­cole Ward vis­ited to read a tra­di­tional ver­sion of The Nut­cracker.

As the story ended, the chil­dren were in­vited to par­tic­i­pate in an en­er­gis­ing work­shop where they were taught some sim­ple move­ment se­quences based on the char­ac­ters in the book.

“Our com­mu­nity re­ally val­ues the per­form­ing arts and it was so great to wel­come the West Aus­tralian Bal­let into the Town to share their pas­sion with our youngest mem­bers and in­spire them to learn,” Mayor Trevor Vaughan said.

Sto­ry­time is held ev­ery Tues­day and Thurs­day dur­ing the school term at the li­brary from 9.30am-10.30am.

Chil­dren over the age of two are wel­come to come along and en­joy sto­ries, rhymes and craft ac­tiv­i­ties.
