Kids ages 3-5 can explore the fanciful world of Mother Goose and her friends through ballet at this free story time with dancing and movement.
Through story and song, the play shines a light on their dreams, their times with family and friends, and the trials and tribulations they faced as children living in a divided and segregationist city.

This production is a collaboration between The Black Rep and COCA.
