Library hosts dance, reading with Gwendolyn

KINGSTON — Gwendolyn the Graceful Pig dances at Kingston Community Library Friday, a day when school is not in session.

Enjoy a perfect hour of ballet fun for the budding dancers and story lovers in your family at 2 p.m. when ballerinas from A Dance Vision take center stage at Kingston Community Library.

Author David Ira Rottenberg reads his picture book, “Gwendolyn, the Graceful Pig,” while the dancers perform the story.

As an added treat, a mini-movement lesson is offered to the children in the audience after the performance. Rottenberg will have his books available to autograph.

“Gwendolyn, the Graceful Pig” tells the tale of Gwendolyn and Omar – two best friends who have big dreams. Gwendolyn longs to dance ballet and Omar wants to join the football team. There is just one problem — they are both pigs.

“A Dance Vision has great young dancers and the kids who come to the show always love it,” Rottenberg said. “It’s a great program for instilling a love for dance and reading in children.”

The event is free. Bring dancing shoes and cameras.

The library is at 2 Library Lane. Call 642-3521.
