Twisted Tales is our year long program specifically designed for our youngest Future STaRS! The program consists of theatre games, movement and performance etiquette provided in a safe and nurturing environment, employing positive feedback, which allows each child to learn and have fun! In addition, students will work, throughout the year, on their own performance, using a script specifically written by our Not Just Dance staff for this class. Each year, the performance will change. But, in each case, the script will either be based on one (or a mash up of two or more) stories being done by Not Just Dance students that year. So for example, what would happen if Alice (from Alice in Wonderland) went to Munchkinland (from Wizard of Oz). In this class, children will be encouraged to act silly and express themselves while learning how to respect others, grow their confidence, use and develop their imagination and increase their confidence.

Mr. Goose’s Charlie, Chocolate, and Charming Chipwips

By Adam LeKang

Not Just Dance is excited to announce that the 2019-2020 Twisted Tales students will perform Mr. Goose’s Charlie, Chocolate, and Charming Chipwips, by Adam LeKang. In this delightful production, we are introduced to a classroom full of students and their teacher Ms. Peachy. Ms. Peachy is reading a children’s book written by Mr. Goose. The title of the book is Charlie, Chocolate and Charming Chipwips. As Ms. Peachy reads the books, the students stand up and act out the story. In the story, we learn that Charlie, the owner of a chocolate factory in town, is running a contest where the winners will be granted a tour of his famous factory. We meet Billy, his Dad Mr. Luckit, his Mom Mrs. Luckit along with other young students Alberta and Vincent and their mothers. Throughout the story, our students learn lessons on how to behave and about relationships … or do they? This story playfully pokes fun of stories that are familiar to us while exploring the relevance of books in this new age of easily accessible streaming entertainment.
