When Luna dances, she feels like the world’s volume turns up, like all colours brighten, like sunlight sparkles behind every cloud. But when she takes her dance exam she ducks, dives, spins and… falls. Luna thinks she can’t be a real dancer now. Can Luna’s family convince her otherwise? With live drawing from illustrator Fiona Lumbers and sparkling, interactive readings of Luna Loves Dance from performance poet and author Joseph Coelho.
