The story we are going to use is Ella Bella Ballerina and A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Ella Bella is having a ballet lesson. Her teacher has given the children some clothes to dress up in and played some music called ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream,’ for them to dance to. This music is based on William Shakespeare’s play and there are fairies and a king and queen in the play. When the ballet lesson ends, Ella Bella stays behind on her own to dance.
