MONKEY PUZZLE

Stories Set To Music with Dance

Toscana Strings introduce the string family to the audience and the concept of ballet.

Each character the little monkey and the butterfly visit represents a different dance. For example the elephant is a march, the spider is a charlston and the bat dances to heavy metal! 

 

Before the story starts the audience is taught these dances so they can join in during the little monkey's journey to find him mum. 

Toscana Strings and Laura perform the story and invite the audience to join in with the different dances during the little monkey's adventure.

 

These concerts last approximately 40 minutes and we can perform up to six in one day.
