This production brings students into the world of dance, in a manner that appeals to their senses and their generation. It is an original story ballet with a dual mission; entertainment and education. It emphasizes the importance of caring for our planet’s fauna and flora and the fact that we all need to do our part. It leads students into discussion about social issues of conservation and protection of our endangered species. This multi-media story ballet about endangered species and the environment is presented as an educational field trip for Miami-Dade County School children. All students receive an interactive workbook containing age appropriate activities that address both the ballet and its environmental theme.
