Ella's thrilled to take on a new role but quickly realizes she's only filling in and won't get to perform onstage.
This advanced Dance-It-Out! story is ideal for ballet students or kids aged 6-9 who have enjoyed other books in the series. Kids are invited to join Ashton and Ballerina Konora practicing steps such as pliés, tendus, rond de jambes, petit battements, and sautés.
Ballerina Konora joins the pages with photos of ballet steps and ideas for further movement exploration. Ella’s Dance Debut features Ashton (no pronouns), Ella (she), and other dancers. Readers get a backstage look at professional ballet life as Ella experiences the studio and theater’s sights, sounds, and smells. Handling disappointment, empathy, and the discipline of dance weave into this charming story.
Please note, a brief biography of Ashton Edwards, Pacific Northwest Ballet dancer, is offered in the back of the book.
