The Chocolate Factory
'....it was really brilliant. The choreography, the music, the theme, the costumes, the kids looked and were amazing!'
Big Steps Little Feet have been creating positive performance experiences for you children for the past 14 years and we remain the perfect introduction to the art of ballet performance for children aged 2-18.
The concert is essentially for the children. It instils confidence, sparks joy and nurtures crucial presentation skills, right from the early years. It is also a wonderful time for the teachers to present their creativity. It fires their spirit, which only gives wonderful things back to the children in their classes.
The hour long concert is a collaborative storytelling process involving teachers, costume designers, set designers and children and it evolves over time. It’s an opportunity to stage the best of all our abilities in the highest theatrical manner and to hold space for the children to be totally and uniquely themselves. We architect a rare, un rushed childhood experience, by giving children sufficient time on stage to be immersed into the world of performance.
The love and attention the children receive is an overwhelming form of validation. Years from now they may not remember what they did on stage, but they will certainly remember how they felt.
The elder students will lead our junior performers to bring our story of The Chocolate Factory to life. Watch as Ms Wonka leads 10 lucky children on a delightful (yet trecherous) journey through the chocolate factory to discover who will be gifted this impressive lolly palace.
The enchanting ballet will feature costumes from Tutu du Monde, sets designed by Haylee Codina and lots of free dancing!
Tutu du Monde are the suppliers for our costumes. Tutu du Monde's values align nicely with the values of Big Steps Little Feet, it is an ethical company whose tutus are hand-made, hand-dyed, one-off with details of sequins, beads and feathers applied by hand to cotton, silk and tulle. The tutus are made to last and get better with wear. The designs are perfect and totally appropriate for each role in The Chocolate Factory.
