    The Singing Tortoise

    Based on a West African folk tale, The Singing Tortoise teaches children the value of keeping your word and respecting others. This fun-for-all-ages children’s ballet tells the story of a hunter named Ama who meets a magical singing tortoise in the forest. Ama promises not to tell anyone about the tortoise’s talent, but breaks his word and suffers the consequences.

    Narration, whimsical costumes and a short performance time...

This fun-for-all-ages children’s ballet tells the story of a hunter named Ama who meets a magical singing tortoise in the forest. Ama promises not to tell anyone about the tortoise’s talent, but breaks his word and suffers the consequences.

    Narration, whimsical costumes and a short performance time make The Singing Tortoise a great way to introduce dance to children of all ages.

    Learn to dance like the Ama, the tortoise and all of their animal friends during an interactive portion immediately following the performance!
