Erynn (Age 8) - ★★★★★

'I really enjoyed it because it was bright, magical and colourful and even the children got to dance in it. I give it 5 stars.'

Mum - ★★★★★

'Unless you count my 4 year old niece's recital, I had never been to live ballet before. Although it was always something I had wanted to see, I wasn't sure what to expect. In particular, the total non verbal aspect, with an anything but, non verbal, 8 year old lol. I needn't have been concerned though, as the spectacle of it all kept us both enthralled. I particularly enjoyed the second half. The performances for the girl were, for someone such as myself, with little experience of ballet, like watching a compilation of best bits. We both throughly enjoyed it.'

Greta (Age 7) - ★★★★★

'The music was nice, and I really enjoyed the first act because the boys were being naughty and it was very funny. I liked the ballerinas with tiaras and crowns, and people with Spanish outfits. I liked the atrezo however was very little. I liked the story very much and I give it 5 starts!'
