Celebrate GIRAFFES CAN'T DANCE DAY with us!

We have adopted World Giraffe Day as Giraffes Can’t Dance Day, because we believe that what makes you YOU and dancing to your own tune deserves to be celebrated.

About Giraffes Can't Dance

Gerald the tall giraffe would love to join in with the other animals at the Jungle Dance, but everyone knows that giraffes can’t dance… or can they?

A family favourite for over 20 years, this is a funny, touching and triumphant story about being yourself and finding your own tune, by bestselling creators Giles Andreae and Guy Parker-Rees.
