Episode 20 of Tale Waves – the storytelling podcast for younger children – is a story entitled “Sky Dancers“, and is told to our regular host Hetty by somebody called Starday Nite, once known as Alexander.
To mark the fact, Hetty has travelled all the way to the fictional, windswept location of Nordland, to capture the tale for her regular listeners – and to see the beautiful Northern Lights, dancing across the sky in all their beauty for herself.
All the names, characters locations, and incidents featured in this and all other stories featured in episodes of Tale Waves are from the imagination of Gilly Stewart, and are completely fictitious. No identification with actual persons (living or deceased), or places is intended, or should be inferred.
