Multi-award winning international company Aracaladanza consistently delights audiences throughout Europe with their extraordinarily magical dance theatre made especially for children and families.

Wonderful dance, ingenious puppetry, and terrific digital visuals are delivered with the trademark playfulness, creativity and style that mark this company out as one of the most accessible, and one of the best.
