LoveReading View on Ballet Academy 1: Dance Steps

This is a terrific new series of books that any aspiring dancer aged 7+ will love to read. Readers can share the life and dreams of 11 year old Zoe and her dancer friends at Ballet Academy as they work hard at their technique.  The series will also provide a behind-the-scenes look at life in a ballet school. In Dance Steps, the first in the series (although there’s no need to read them in order), Zoe and her friends must get to grips with the end of year show whilst at the same time trying to ignore one of the dancers whose teasing is making everyone miserable.

Zoe is eleven years old and has only one dream: to become a star ballerina! She goes to school at the prestigeous Ballet Academy, but everyone has to work really hard – the head teacher, Madame Olenska, is very strict.

Preparing for the end of year show presents new challenges for Zoe and her friends – Zoe's best friend, Leda, is growing too tall for some of the
parts and Laila's teasing is making them all miserable. Will they be able to reach out for their dreams? Or is it all destined for failure?
