Hazel Leys Academy

Tuesday 17th April - Northern Ballet Company are spending time in school to deliver a workshop for Reception and Year 1 children.

Ugly Duckling is lonely and fed-up, ignored by those around her who think she is too ugly to fit in. She tries to make friends with fellow ducklings as well as with frogs, cats and even a fox, but realising she is not like any of these animals, she is left sad and alone. Duckling, on her journey, realises she can overcome her troubles and that she is beautiful all along.

Retelling the famous Hans Christian Andersen fairytale, Ugly Duckling is the perfect opportunity for young children to enjoy live ballet, music and theatre.

As seen on CBeebies, Northern Ballet’s sell-out productions for children are not to be missed.

This child-friendly performance lasts approximately 40 minutes.
