#Family #Music

Making friends, falling out, and making up again.
Side by side, two by two,
Giggle, joke, play, and chatter.

But what happens when two becomes three?
Can two best friends make room for another? 

Peek into the lives of two best friends as their world is turned upside down when another friend wants to play too.

Through movement, music and fun, join US as we explore loneliness, understanding, empathy and love. Discover the importance of friends and how simple acts of kindness can change the world.
