It was a dance show like no other last Friday night in Featherston.
A group of children had been working hard over the school holidays with dance teacher Justine Eldred, and guest teacher Aurora Lagattuta.
Their performance, Blink, was a magical merger of the well-known tales of Alice in Wonderland and Narnia.
Held in the Great Room at the historic Fareham House in Featherston, parents watched from the staircase as their children twirled, sang, and acted in the production.
But to stay safe in Narnia, the children all had to be careful not to fall asleep – otherwise they would turn to stone.
Lagattuta, who played the “White Witch from America”, is doing her masters in dance at the University of California, San Diego.
She is an artist in residence at New Zealand Pacific Studio at Mount Bruce.
“It’s been delightful to meet all of these beautiful, talented, young artists,” she said.
