Inspired by the award-winning children's book series by author Katharine Holabird and illustrator Helen Craig, the new Angelina Ballerina The Next Steps follows the now 8-year-old Angelina as she embarks on the next stage in her life at a new school where she experiences new forms of music and dance. The series sees Angelina living on the other side of Chipping Cheddar, attending Camembert Academy, a school for the Performing Arts, and making friends with a cast of characters including her new dance teacher, Ms. Mimi. Angelina Ballerina The Next Steps celebrates music and brings to life many forms of dance for Angelina including ballet, modern, tap, jazz, classical and ethnic. As an 8-year-old ballerina, her life revolves around dancing and performance, family, friendship and following her dreams. Angelina always works hard to reach her goals and learns from her mistakes. As young children share in Angelina's experiences, they're inspired to go after their big dreams too!
