Ella’s Dance Debut

by Once Upon a Dance

April 04 – 07

Chapter book, 34 pages.

Brand new book about to be released.

Once Upon a Dance donates all proceeds to charity.

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 photo reminders of ballet steps as well as ideas for further movement exploration.
