Once upon a time there was a speedy Hare who would never stop talking about how fast he could run. Sick of being teased for his slowness, Tortoise challenged him to a race. No one thought he could win, but life is full of surprises!

With playful characters and spellbinding music, this adorable ballet is sure to have your little ones dancing with excitement!
