Welcome to the Ballet Theatre, home to the Golightly School of Dance! This exciting building is packed full of fun and clever features.
The rotating dance floor provides the perfect space for your dancers to practice their moves as you turn the handle, while the theatre itself has music speakers installed and is pre-programmed with the music from both ‘Swan Lake’ and ‘The Nutcracker’. There’s even the facility to plug in your iPod or smartphone and play your own music through the speaker, so your Sylvanians can dance to all your favourite tunes [requires 3.5mm cable; not included].
The large double doors open up to provide a grand entrance to this special building on performance nights. There’s a ticket window at the front and inside there's a back-stage area with a large mirror for getting ready and warming up. For the stage area there's reversible scenery, reversible floor decoration, and even traditional red stage curtains to draw back for the performance. Also includes one figurine of rabbit sister Freya Chocolate.

All characters are grouped into families, with the company starting out with woodland creatures, before expanding into more domestic animals such as cats and dogs, as well as obscure ones such as penguins and meerkats.
Their world is set in the 1970s era, with most families being of a rural lower-middle class. Many inhabitants own successful family businesses or have professions such as teachers and doctors.
They started production in 1985 and were released in Japan and North America only. However, by 1987, their success ensured them to travel overseas to Western Europe. By 1988 they were a runaway success, even having their own animated TV show.
The range did experience a slight dip in popularity come the end of the 1990s, being discontinued in the UK. But it was soon revived by Flair and in 2007, they celebrated their 20th anniversary with a bang.More from Sylvanian Families
