Gwendolyn the Graceful Pig Dances at Coolidge Corner Library
Enjoy a perfect day of ballet fun for the budding dancers and story lovers in your family when dancers from MassMotion take center stage at the Coolidge Corner Branch Library. Author David Ira Rottenberg will read his picture book, Gwendolyn, the Graceful Pig, while the dancers perform the story. As an added treat, a mini-movement lesson will be offered to the children in the audience after the performance and Rottenberg will sign copies of his book.
Gwendolyn, the Graceful Pig tells the tale of Gwendolyn and Omar – two best friends who have big dreams. Gwendolyn longs to dance ballet and Omar wants to join the football team. There is just one problem – they are both pigs!
Picture book author, David Rottenberg, contacted Terri Gordon, director and owner of MassMotion about offering the event in local libraries and Ms.Gordon was immediately enthusiastic. She says, “Our school wants to share our love for ballet with as many young people as possible and this program is a wonderful, fun way to not only instill a love for dance but also a love for reading.”
The event is free. Bring your cameras!
