Dance Is For Everyone
When a large, green alligator turns up to ballet class one day, Miss Iraina and the students are very surprised but, as the alligator doesn’t seem too keen on eating any of them, they decide to let her stay.
Although Tanya (the alligator) doesn’t understand instructions, she’s very good at copying the others but her heavy swishy tail is a bit of a problem. With a little flexibility and kindness, what might have been Tanya’s downfall as a dancer is turned into her greatest asset.
The theme of this charming and funny picture book is a familiar one – being different – but it also explores issues of confidence, acceptance and the universal language of dance.
