Today Ella came to work with me to take part in a school holiday program – the Australian Ballet dance education. The children participated in a range of dance-related activities and workshops led by The Australian Ballet’s Dance Education Ensemble. Later in the morning the parents re-joined the group to watch a performance by the Ensemble which was interactive for the kids. They particularly like seeing some of the lavish costumes used in an Australian Ballet production of Snuggle Pot & Cuddle Pie.
After the performance lunch was provided for all and Ella was most excited to get her gift bag with colouring pencils, a money bank and NAB drink bottle!
My colleague’s daughter, Jacqueline, was also taking part so she and Ella became buddies. They entertained themselves at our desks really well for the remainder of the afternoon thanks to colouring books, ipad etc.
