A World to Shake
A World to Shake

Ballet in the Schools is a program for staging convenient, child-friendly ballet in schools across Canada. Each performance teaches valuable life lessons and includes interactive pre- and post-show discussions.

Ballet in the Schools performances this season are of A World to Shake, a new Canadian story and a discovery for children of all ages!

Esme (ez-may) is turning 13 tomorrow. She is curious - wondering what’s next for her - and reflective while peering into her special snow globe. She shakes up the world inside and is entranced as the enchanted village comes to life! What’s ahead is a world of excitement, as Esme discovers more about herself and the world around her on her birthday.


“The music is superb, the movement, transitions, characters, costumes… Loved it all.”
