“I love the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory story! I’m thankful that Ms. Sara created this ballet,” said Saron Lawrence, a ten-year-old student. “I love being in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory because we get to be squirrels and do a lot of cool choreography,” said ten-year-old Madison Carroll.
