Members of Northern Ballet’s production of The Three Little Pigs, which is due to show at Norwich Theatre Royal Friday, visited staff and pupils at Arden Grove Infant and Nursery School, off Reepham Road, today.

Leanne Kirkham, from Northern Ballet’s education team, said: “The children were absolutely fantastic. They were really engaged and expressive and enjoyed bringing the characters to life. They have learned some of the steps that the dancers will do.

“I love running workshops like this. I have the best job in the world.”

As well as showing off some of their moves, the performers gave an insight into the work which goes into a production.

Pupil Sienna Fuller, aged five, said: “My favourite part was spinning around because it was really fun. I think The Three Little Pigs will be really good to see.”

Amelia Potter, five, said: “I liked drinking the tea because it was really fun. It’s going to be great to see the Three Little Pigs.”

Darcy Saddleton, five, said: “I liked pretending to roll in the mud because it was nice. It will be nice to see The Three Little Pigs.”

Omari Caramatta, five, said: “My favourite part was when we passed around the pig and the ballet shoes because we got to cuddle the pig and feel the shoes. I think it is going to be great to see The Three Little Pigs because it will be just like the book.”
