What Do You Do With An Idea?

by Inlet Dance Theatre

Grades PK-4


Told through movement, music, and narration, an ensemble of dancers creates a magical world where ideas grow and take flight. When a child has an idea, they don’t know what to do with it. At first, they attempt to hide it away, but when the idea gets stronger so does the child’s confidence, leading up to the day something amazing happens. Based on the New York Times best selling book, this is a story for anyone, at any age, who has ever had an idea that seemed a little too big, too odd, or too difficult.
