Larrikin 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.
There’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
