From Drawing to Dance: Puss in Boots Comes to Life at The Broad Stage - Going to the Theater for the First Time

This weekend, we'll be taking the boys to the theater for the first time, and this unique performance happening at the Broad Stage in Santa Monica seemed like a great introductory opportunity for them as it incorporates music, dance and film and is followed by milk and cookies! Who wouldn't love that? 

Here's a bit more about this unique performance: Puss in Boots: From Drawing to Dance offers a privileged peek behind-the-scenes as Helios Artistic Director Laura Gorenstein Miller and her dancers share the process of creating the choreography for the characters in Dreamworks’ Academy Award-nominated film, Puss In Boots. Drawings dance to life in styles from Flamenco to contemporary as this award-winning company incorporates rarely seen hand drawn story boards, choreography, video of the motion capture technology and finished film scenes from the movie. It’s fascinating for audiences of all ages to experience live dance in this new and innovative way using popular culture and the love of film. The one hour show is followed by a half-hour fun festival with fresh cookies and milk, entertainment, crafts and an artist meet and greet. If you're in the Greater Los Angeles Area like me, come check it out!

P.S. This is NOT a sponsored post. I love the work of the Broad Stage, feel strongly about introducing children to the arts, including theater, and I'm a filmmaker, so the behind-the-scenes element attracted me. Given all of that, I just had to share it. 

P.S.S. Have you taken your children to the theater? How did it go? Do you have any tips? Please share in the comments!
