Pinocchio

The original story of Pinocchio, written by Carlo Collodi, was published in Italy in 1883.
This story follows the adventures of Pinocchio, a wooden marionette brought to life by magic. A delightfully curious character, Pinocchio is the embodiment of childhood innocence - truly pure at heart but lacking the experience to make good choices.

Through his encounters with several outlandish characters, and always guided by the unseen Fairy, he learns the difference between right & wrong, the value of family, and what it means to be 'real'. A heartwarming tale, full to the brim with morals just as valid now as they were when Pinocchio was written. We're thrilled to give our Heartland spin to this unforgettable classic!

Boatnik Parade 2019

Boatnik Parade Theme "Anyone can be a superhero for kids!"

This year we will have a float in the Boatnik parade and we need dancers to walk alongside our wonderful float promoting our June Pinocchio show!
NO BALLET SLIPPERS!

We start at D St. and walk all the way to Evergreen Federal Bank on SE Voorhies way. It's recommended to wear comfortable shoes for the journey. Sunhats, sunglasses, and sunblock is recommended if weather was like last year. If you have a wagon and would like to tow your child, this is totally fine! Parents please wear a Heartland T-shirt. Dancers will be allowed to wear their choice of past costume.
NO CURRENT YEAR COSTUMES ALLOWED.
(Only lead characters will be allowed to wear their current costume.)

If you need help finding a costume, we have plenty to choose from. Please contact Laurel, our dance manager if you need a costume. Laurel@heartlanddancestudio.com

Creative Movement and Pre-Ballet please note this parade is many blocks from the Dutch House ALL the way to Evergreen Federal Bank. That’s eleven blocks!
Bringing strollers or some other type of wagon is suggested.

Comfortable shoes, sunscreen, hydration and water supply will be key to successfully making to the end!
