BALLERINA is an animated family film about a young girl who runs away from an orphanage in order to try to achieve her dream of becoming a dancer.


Scenes of mild threat including children being chased by a man on a motorbike as they fly on home-made wings and race in an out of control cart. A character is also chased up some scaffolding by a woman who threatens her with a large hammer. In a still image some knives fly towards a young boy as he relates his adventures in the city. Characters are seen practising their dance moves on the roofs of buildings.

There is also some very mild violence as a character is struck on the stomach and head.<

There's some very mild rude humour as characters make jokes about farting.
