A Bellydance Alice?

Will you, won't you, will you, won't you, won't you join the dance?

Will you, won’t you, will you, won’t you, won’t you join the dance?

London’s Royal Ballet will remount their acclaimed production of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland during the 2014 holiday season.  And in a clever cross-marketing move, the Ballet has also invited popular hip hop dance company ZooNation to present their own “hip” (and “hop,” presumably) version of the tale, The Mad Hatter’s T Party, in their smaller theatre downstairs at the same time.  Twice the Carrollian fun for theatre and dance (and Alice) fans!
