From the Choreographer

I know from experience that sometimes my little boy is in the mood to sit peacefully and watch - and other days he wants to move and explore. Underneath the Floorboards embraces the choices our children make as audience members. With some optional interaction between the dancers and children you can sit back and enjoy these extraordinary performers close up, and enjoy your children's responses to them. It doesn't matter if you or your child has seen any dance before - there are lights, colourful costumes and songs to accompany the story.
