Tate Academy’s classical dancers from the Littlest Gems to Grade Eight, are excited to present a showcase of dances within the theme of the poem – The Rainbow Crystal.
Set in a magical land far away our story tells of a mischievous Imp who finds a beautiful crystal high on the mountain. He decides to keep it for himself and takes it back to his home and hides it away. Unbeknown to the Imp the crystal is a key component in the colour of his world. Only one inhabitant knows of the crystal’s role, the wisened Owl. She tells the villagers how light and a crystal together can make a rainbow. It’s this rainbow that colours their world. To get the colour back, they need to find why the rainbow has gone.
