Sanna Valvanne takes the audience on an unforgettable journey around the world with her new one- woman’s show. Singing, dancing and playing instruments in imaginative, fun and creative ways are weaved into a touching and timely story with a timeless message, told by Sanna’s charming and loving character.

Sanna arrives on stage with a big suitcase, thinking she has arrived in Lapland, ready to meet Santa Clause. She wants to make sure he gives her all the things she needs. As the suitcase opens and the magical story unfolds, the children participate actively in the imagined visits to different countries with their own voices and bodies, getting a tangible taste of each culture. Sanna playfully loosens and warms up the everyone in the audience with her fun and holistic exercises, making it easy and natural to sing and move along in different languages and styles.

Together with Sanna the children also learn, how good it feels to become still and listen to nature, and how anything is possible when we relax, focus, become centered and believe in ourselves. At the end of the journey, Sanna's character realizes that she doesn’t need any of the things she first thought. Sharing all of what they have been doing during the show together, is what she loves, what makes her happy, and what really matters.

It's natural for children to want to join in performances. Sing and Shine offers a delightful opportunity for this. The children not only learn about different cultures and important things life, but also get to express themselves. The children feel part of the performance and shine with Sanna!
