Onisere and the Ballet Queen


Onisere wants to be a ballet dancer but there’s just one problem: she’s black and she’s never seen any other ballet dancers who look like her.

Enter Simbira, the Ballet Queen, who takes Onisere, and her annoying, football mad little brother Tayo, on a fantastical journey through the history of black British ballet.

For children aged 4+
