Joe Blogs at Sadler's Wells
Smart boy about town has his head in the clouds for his first visit to the ballet

I wandered lonely as a cloud
Hi. It's me Joe.
Now don't get me wrong. I like dance as much as the next guy, but I haven't actually ever been to the ballet before, so this was my first time. My mum and sister took me to see Clouds at the Family Weekend at Sadler's Wells. There were these dancers inside giant white plastic bags prancing about the stage, so they looked like floating clouds. Obviously, don't try this at home: it could be very dangerous! The Family Weekends events are really cool: there's all sorts of art activites and fun stuff going on – you could paint your own clouds or make a funny hat, or decorate a balloon. But what I really liked was the seats in the theatre which you could flip up and down. Not sure the lady in front of me was that impressed though…
