Hare and the Tortoise

Philippa from Northern Ballet Company led us in a movement session based on the traditional tale 'The Hare and the Tortoise'.  First of all we warmed and stretched our bodies and then we were ready to begin.  We moved in lots of ways like the creatures in the story as we listened to different pieces of music.  We jumped like the hare, making big ears with our hands.  We moved very slowly like the tortoise, hiding in our shells.  We skipped and danced with pom-poms just like the rabbits cheering on the animals race.  Towards the end we went to sleep just like the hare, which was why the tortoise won.  The hare and tortoise made friends at the end of the story.  We all had a fantastic time!
