Doodles, dance and drama equals a delightful day

“Doesn’t it feel good to have your socks off?”

Who doesn’t want to dance with pirates?

And who doesn’t love it when it snows inside?

When Anna Williams and Tom Roden greeted their Lincoln Drill Hall audience with the first question this afternoon at the start of The Doodle Dance Show and invited everyone to wave their toes at each other you could tell you were in for a playful time.

Leading us through an imaginative narrative intertwined with dance and drawing, we all had our own chance to add to the pictures and move in line with the story as the tale of accidental exploration and homecoming unfolded.

An auditorium full of paper clearly wasn’t a big enough canvas for Willow who enjoyed drawing on herself too

The excitement of the whirling pirate dancing quickly prompted an “again, again” from Luke, they both really enjoyed being drawn around and Willow’s magical smile of wonderment and Luke’s delighted laugh at the snow falling at the close of the show proved how engaged by the performance they were.

Interactive dance theatre definitely seems to be where my love of children’s theatre and Luke’s need to do and move rather than just watch combines and The Doodle Dance Show provided us with a lovely afternoon of imaginative adventure, joy of movement and family fun.
