Review: Dance with Me

We all have treasured childhood possessions. We all grow up and leave these beloved items behind for a time. Dance with Me celebrates the joy of those erstwhile treasures and reassures these happy times don’t have to be forgotten forever.

The ballerina in a musical treasure box longs to share her dance forever. She rejoices each time a little girl winds up her box and dances alongside her. When the little girl finds other pastimes and different friends, ballerina goes in search of new companions but she never finds anyone as special as that little girl. Until one day, many years later, small hands lift the lid of Ballerina’s box and the music begins once more.

Dance With Me: a gentle, heartfelt tale of childhood treasures, the sadness of their loss and the joy of history repeating itself.
