Don’t miss Northern Ballet’s hugely popular Ugly Duckling – a ballet for children, at Nightingale Primary Academy on Saturday 16th December. Based on the classic Hans Christian Andersen fairytale, Ugly Duckling tells the story of a lonely duckling who doesn’t quite fit in with her friends. Throughout the ballet, the duckling learns about herself and those around her and when she learns to love who she is she turns into a beautiful swan and begins a happy new life.
Sebastian Loe said, ‘The great thing about Ugly Duckling and other children's stories is that they teach important and timeless values from a young age. The message we want to put across in Ugly Duckling is that we should be confident in embracing who we are and ultimately we should not be afraid of being ourselves.’
