Enjoy a perfect day of ballet fun for the budding dancers and story lovers in your family on Thursday, August 22 at 4 PM when ballerinas from A Performing Arts Academy take center stage at the Revere Public Library. Author David Ira Rottenberg will read his picture book, Gwendolyn, the Graceful Pig, while the dancers perform the story. As an added treat, a mini-movement lesson will be offered to the children in the audience after the performance and Mr. Rottenberg will autograph his books.
Gwendolyn, the Graceful Pig tells the tale of Gwendolyn and Omar – two best friends who have big dreams. Gwendolyn longs to dance ballet and Omar wants to join the football team. There is just one problem – they are both pigs!
Picture book author, David Rottenberg, says, “A Performing Arts Academy has great young dancers and the kids who come to the shows always love it. It’s a great program for instilling a love for dance and reading in children.”
The event is free. Bring your cameras!
