Ballet Kids

By Holly Sterling

My toes tingle with excitement. It’s ballet class today!

Snowflakes are falling softly outside when Thomas and his friends arrive at Mr Elliot’s dance studio. Prancing and whirling and twirling around the room, the boys and girls perfect their steps – first and second position, pliés, curtsies and more. Then, it's time for the most exciting moment ... picking out costumes for their first ever performance: The Nutcracker! Joyful and spirited, this young celebration of dancing is inspired by the author’s time learning ballet as a child, and will have little dancers, and aspiring dancers, pointing their toes and joining in.
