On Monday 1 April CBeebies showed a very special version of Ugly Duckling presented by Mr Bloom. Look on the CBeebies website more features, makes and even learn how to dance like the ducklings!
Ugly Duckling is our first ballet especially for children and is the perfect opportunity to introduce your little ones to the magic of live ballet, music and theatre.
A poor duckling is lonely and fed-up, shunned by those around her who see her as too ugly to fit in. She tries to make friends with fellow ducklings as well as with frogs, cats and even a fox, but realising she is not like any of these animals, she is left sad and alone. Follow the duckling on her journey as she overcomes her troubles and turns into a beautiful swan, beginning a happy new life.
Our first performances of Ugly Duckling in Leeds were a sell-out success, so don't miss the opportunity to see this adorable production this spring.
These child friendly performances are just 45 minutes long.
Recommended for children aged 0-8 - and grown-ups too!
Please ask venues for babes-in-arms seating and policies on bringing the very young.
We are creating more new Short Ballets for Small People.
We’re looking for new titles too. Tell us what you think would be a great ballet to make!
Think about all the books, fairytales and bedtime stories you might have read at home, school or nursery. Which ones are you favourites?
