This ballet is quite different for our ballet school as it includes narration and speech from the characters, bringing an extra layer of entertainment to our audience. Including speech in our ballet also makes the timing more complicated. It is imperative that the dancing matches the words, and the words match the music, so that the production can come across as seamless as possible to the audience.

One of the fabulous parts of Alice in Wonderland is the costumes. There are quite a number of funny wacky costumes for everyone to enjoy. Everyones favourites, the Mad Hatter and the March Hare, with all their crazy guests, the long caterpillar, the flamingos, the hedgehogs and not to be forgotten , the Queen of Hearts.

Alice in Wonderland is a story that many have enjoyed . Through the original story book , the Disney movie or the many other recreations.  The Australian Dance Academy along with Black Book Theatre Company created our own adaptation in 2012. We had a great time spreading the madness and now, with the help of Leslie Simpson we will be bringing this fun and quirky performance back to life for our 2021 Magic of Dance production.
