Ballet Besties: Yara's Chance to Dance Synopsis

The first in a fun and inclusive series bringing the joy of dance to all readers, from Principal Ballerina and popular children’s author. 

Pirouette your way into the Shimmer & Shine dance studio, where the ballet besties are ready to put on a show!

When Yara joins Shimmer & Shine, a community dance school, she meets lots of other children her age, who are there to either start their training or just for the fun of it. Soon she has a group of ballet besties she loves to dance with. But then Dame Clougston-Wilmott, their grumpy, dance-hating landlady threatens to close the studio.

Suddenly it's up to Yara and her new friends to keep Shimmer & Shine open! Will putting on a performance of The Sleeping Beauty reawaken the Dame's love for dance?

Will Yara have the chance to dance her dream role of Aurora?

And most importantly of all, can the ballet besties save their studio?

Breaking down the traditional idea of what a ballet dancer looks like, this gorgeous black and white illustrated series brings the joy of classical ballet to young readers – featuring characters of all ages, genders, ethnicities and body sizes enjoying dance!

With accessible writing and endmatter, including a glossary and explanations of dance moves, there’s no previous ballet knowledge needed to enjoy Ballet Besties!
