Félicie’s got grit
Don’t let the dainty pointe shoes fool you. Ballerina’s heroine is just as gutsy as Moana and the latest band of animated heroines being brought to the big screen. Orphan Félicie Milliner arrives in Paris in 1884 with no money, but one big dream: to become a dancer – which takes serious grit, as she finds out.
It’s got a stellar cast
Elle Fanning lends her voice to the lead role, with teen dance pro Maddie Ziegler, who shot to fame after her epic performance in Sia’s "Chandelier" music video, playing her ultra-competitive rival – plus, pop star Carly Rae Jepsen features.
It’ll transport you to the streets of Paris
Félicie twirls and pirouettes through the charmingly animated streets of nineteenth century Paris.
It’s got some serious talent behind it
Aurélie Dupont, a principal at the Paris Opera Ballet, is part of the team behind Ballerina – and her beautiful choreography and use of motion capture will have you dancing out of your local Vue as the credits roll.
You’ll get a free tiara for your tiny dancer
Just when you thought the whole thing couldn’t get any more magical, if you book a child ticket with us now you’ll get a free tiara for your own little ballerina.
