How To Build A Universe by Extended Play

Reimagining the formation of our universe and planet through playfulness and creativity, How To Build A Universe invites children to participate by dancing along to lively music with two energetic performers. 

Deva by Pagrav Dance

Playful and engaging, two Indian classical performers will inspire young audiences to think differently and get creative with movement themselves, in an original, narrative-led dance piece.
