Weekend Planner — Kids
“Gwendolyn, the Graceful Pig” tells the story of Gwendolyn and Omar, two best friends with big dreams: Gwendolyn wants to dance ballet while Omar wants to join the football team. There’s only one problem — they’re both pigs!
On Saturday, picture book author David Rottenberg will be at the Jones Library in Amherst with dancers from Holyoke’s Massachusetts Academy of Ballet for a dance and story-telling performance. While Rottenberg reads from his book, the ballet dancers will dance and mime the story. “The combination of story and dance works well with children,” Rottenberg says. “They get to listen and they get to dance. It’s quite fun.”
The free event begins at 11 a.m.
