Have a ballet dancer in your midst? A child who knows how to perform an arabesque and pas de chat? A child whose wardrobe includes point shoes, leotards and tulle skirts?

Well, we have just the ticket to Inspire their love of dance further: The Victorian State Ballet is bringing their stunning The Snow Queen performance to Laycock Street Community Theatre this June.

Based on the well-known fairytale of Hans Christian Andersen, The Snow Queen is a beautiful ballet that portrays the heart-warming story of a young girl and her struggle against an evil and icy foe.

Not familiar with this classic tale? Well, it has all the elements of a Disney hit: there’s a troll, an evil queen and a magic mirror, handsome men are locked away in castles, and kisses break spells. It’s magical, enchanting and highly fantastical and makes for a delightful stage show.

But, while this is a narrative ballet, this is a ballet first and foremost – and that’s why you’ll go, and that’s why you’ll love it. The dancing is beautiful – spellbindingly beautiful. The cast is so incredibly majestic and poised as they pirouette, grand jeté and fouette across the stage. The points are on point. And the arms are just so. The dancing is so effortless that you momentarily forget the skill, strength and balance needed to achieve such grace – that is until you attempt to recreate the moves later at home.

If you have a little dancer, this is an opportunity you won’t want to miss. Go on, treat them to a night at the ballet: they’ll think it such a special occasion and feel so very, very special themselves.
