January 19, 2012
Get your camera and your little ones to make the most of a great opportunity this weekend. The Angelina Ballerina Dance Academy is setting up a pop-up studio at St Nicholas Shopping Centre, Sutton, on Saturday and Sunday January 21 and 22, from 11am to4pm.
The highlight of this free experience will be the appearance of Angelina Ballerina herself which will provide a thrilling photographic experience for both the children and their parents.
Angelina Ballerina will join in the dancing to her favourite Angelina Ballerina song encouraging your child to become a dancing star.
The unique experience in the shopping centre will also see competitions and lots of other activities such as storytelling and colouring sessions going on over the two days.
The Angelina Ballerina Dance Academy is a unique dance experience for children aged from three to six years old. The dance classes based on the stories of the international animated sensation, Angelina Ballerina, launched last September throughout the UK, but this pop-up dance experience is the first of its kind.
The local teacher Jane Del Toro who runs the Angelina Ballerina Dance Academy at various locations around Surrey, will be looking after the activities on the day with her team of helpers. Jane is excited about the upcoming event.
She said: “We had a visit from Angelina Ballerina to our classes recently and it was thrilling for the children, they couldn’t contain their excitement. It was very sweet to watch them dance along with their idol.”
The Angelina Ballerina Dance Academy allows children as young as three to develop their musicality, imagination and motor skills in classes that follow and bring to life the adventures of Angelina Ballerina, a remarkable mouse who has taken on the world one pirouette at a time with her determination and unquenchable zest for fun.
The half-hour classes not only introduce children to the early movements in ballet, jazz and musical theatre, they also focus on socialisation skills, positive values and classroom behaviours through the carefully crafted stories of Angelina Ballerina and her friends.
Backed by the success of the hit animation TV series and the books by Katharine Holabird and Helen Craig, this new business venture is making the world of fantasy a reality for young children.
