Josephine Wants to Dance - Geelong

16 Jun 2018, 16 Jun 2018

A story about dreams, believing in yourself, and a dancing kangaroo.

From the award-winning team behind Pete The Sheep comes another hilarious tale of a bush animal you will never forget.

Josephine is a kangaroo – who loves to dance. Her little brother, Joey, tells her that kangaroos do not dance, they hop – but Josephine continues to point her toes and leap through the air.

When a ballet troupe comes to the sleepy town of Shaggy Gully Josephine learns that there is another way to dance – ballet. As the ballet company prepares to perform, Josephine sneaks into town to peer through the window as the dancers rehearse, watching for hours and hours as they perfect their routine. Then Josephine goes home and practices all night, all alone, until she knows the dance by heart. She spun, she swirled and pirouetted dreams, and at the end she always curtsied. She desperately wanted to dance like the ballerinas in pink tutus and silk ballet shoes.

A delightfully funny tale that looks at the importance of believing in yourself and realising your dreams. Perfect for young audiences from four to nine years and their families.
