Cheval Solitaire is lost and needs your help!

Cheval Solitaire is an interactive outdoor walkabout show for young children and their families. performed by three dancers with beautiful custom made horse costumes, live music and lots of opportunities to join in.

Cheval is a lost horse who needs the help of the audience to find her missing carousel home. Once reunited with the other horses at the carousel the dancers prance and trot, offer horseback rides and invite the audience to join in under the colourful canopy of the carousel in a rhythmical dancing rumpus.
