The magic behind Fairy Dancing
About Fairy Dancing
The Fairy Dancing™ Program is unique, as it provides opportunities for children to immerse themselves in The Fairies™ experience, and to participate in a learning environment which uses music, movement, and dance to develop children’s cognitive, emotional and social needs. By associating fairies with dancing, the art of dance is transformed into a magical experience that children will cherish.
About The Fairies
The Fairies™ is an enchanting, magical children’s entertainment brand, brought to life as a children’s TV show. It is based on the five central characters in Harmony and Rhapsody (the two beautiful fairies), Barnaby the Bizzy Buzzy Bee, Elf the Fairy Cake Maker and Wizzy the Wizard. Their days are filled with magic, friends, singing, dancing and of course Fan-fairy-tastic fun.
This is the power of The Fairies and Fairyland – every little girl wants to be a fairy, and we are helping to make their dreams come true.
