Welcome to the new Ballerinas Abroad website! I am so excited to share this book with the world! I know your children will fall in love with it just as much as I have loved working on it! Ballerinas Abroad! An Introduction to the History of Ballet takes you on an adventure around the world with Miss Sara and her students to discover the history of ballet! The dressing nook in Miss Sara’s dance studio magically transforms into the Ballet Transporter. Join her students on a journey to places that played an important role in ballet’s rich history.
I have been in love with ballet for as long as I can remember. It is so much more than just an hour of dance class each week. Once you look past learning the fundamental technique of ballet, you can see all that this hobby has to offer. Ballet, and all dance forms, have the ability to teach children manners, poise, and grace, as well as introduce them to other cultures and different people, languages, and more. Most importantly, I believe, dance has the ability to boost a child’s confidence. What better gift could you give a child?!
Ballerinas Abroad! is an educational company committed to bringing the history of dance and theater alive in a way that encourages children’s interested not only in taking dance and theater lessons, but also to dig deeper into the art forms. This all starts with the first educational book, Ballerinas Abroad! An Introduction to the History of Ballet. We believe that education on the history, vocabulary, technique, and anatomy of a dancer is key to producing a stronger, more well rounded performer. The performing arts offer so much to enrich children’s lives, such as teaching manners and grace and boosting self-confidence.
I look forward to taking this journey with you!
