Dogs Don't Do Ballet

Based on the book written by Anna Kemp and illustrated by Sara Ogilvie.

Biff is not like ordinary dogs. He likes moonlight. And music. And walking on his tiptoes.

You see, Biff doesn’t think he’s a dog, Biff thinks he’s a ballerina…

The sublime and the ridiculous combine in this hilarious story of a small dog with a big personality and even bigger dreams, brought to life by Little Angel Theatre using beautiful puppets, well-loved ballet music and dazzling comedy.


Based on the book by Anna Kemp with illustrations by Sara Ogilvie, published by Simon and Schuster Ltd.
