Tiny Tales and Delightful Dances


The evening's programme was the result of a collaboration between The Ashton Group's Theatre Factory and Dare Dance.


The stories were created in workshop by Theatre Factory's youngest actors, Primary 1 and were then passed  over to Dare Dance Infants and Juniors for their interpretation. While the dances were being created Primary 1 turned the tales into short films.
