Larrikin Puppets collaborate with Happy Feet Fitness

Happy Feet FitnessLarrikin Puppets are very much looking forward to working with the Queensland staff of Happy Feet Fitness in February. Happy Feet Fitness is a wonderful organisation that teaches kids about fitness and healthy choices through fun songs, dancing and games.

 

 

 

Brett School Puppetry Workshop2There’s also an element of puppetry. So we’re very excited to be running a fun puppetry workshop for the staff, teaching them puppetry for live performance, and monitor puppetry for film and TV.

This is not the first time Happy Feet Fitness and Larrikin Puppets have crossed paths. Both companies have performed in many of the same childcare centres, particularly Guppy’s Early Learning Centres around South East Queensland.

Happy feet, I’ve got those happy feet
Give them a low down beat
And they begin dancing
I’ve got those ten little tapping toes
And when they hear a tune
I can’t control my dancing heels
To save my soul

Weary blues can’t get into my shoes
Because my shoes refuse to ever grow weary
I keep cheerful on an earful of music sweet
‘Cause I’ve got happ happ happy feet

Weary blues can’t get in our shows
Because our shoes refuse to ever grow weary
We keep cheerful on an earful of music sweet
‘Cause we’ve got happ happ happy
‘Cause we’ve got happ happ happy feet
Feet!

It started with two fun puppet shows for kids with autism at the AEIOU Early Learning Centre, located on campus at the Sunshine Coast University. In addition to the performance from the puppet stage, the kids got to meet each puppet up close throughout the show too!

Then it was off to the St. Margaret’s Anglican Girls School Advent Centre in Clayfield where the kids were greeted first thing on a Friday morning with a puppet show for two of the students celebrating birthdays.

From there, we did a whirlwind tour of eight Guppy’s Early Learning Centres around South-East Queensland, and had an absolute blast performing for everyone! We started in Caboolture, followed by Runcorn, Chermside West, Deagon, Beerwah, Thornlands, Nerang and Blackbutt.

Then it was off to Ormeau to perform at the PCYC Mother Terasa School Age Care. After the puppet show, the kids made some lovely cards filled with positive feedback.
