I hope you don't mind me posting but thought your dancers might be interested. This is featured in this month’s IDTA Magazine, Jasmine’s Magic Dance Shoes by Eileen Sinclair. There is still a chance for delivery before Christmas. Priced at just £5.50, a good stocking filler for any budding young dancer.

I hope you don’t mind me posting this, but wondered if your students might be interested. I’m a local author, and dance teacher. I have just published my first children's story. Jasmine's Magic Dance Shoes.

Jasmine goes to a Ballroom dance class. She buys a pair of dance shoes which turn out to have a magic power, and her dancing improves overnight. Her dance teacher is so impressed that the search begins to find her a dance partner. They enter competitions, and win lots of trophies, then they get to dance in a competition at the Blackpool Tower Ballroom, but will it go as planned?

This is a short story aimed at 4 - 8 years old with over 30 colour illustrations, but suitable for any age if they are interested in dancing, or just love a story with a twist. It is approx 4000 words, so older children can read it themselves, and younger children can have it read to them. When I searched for children's books about dancing, I found lots of books about ballet, but none about ballroom. It will give you an insight into the world of ballroom dancing with the extra sparkle of some magic.

Available to buy from The Book Shop, Lee on Solent High Street, PO13 9DD or order from Amazon.co.uk https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1093134119?ref_=pe_3052080_397514860 both prized at £5.50

I will be on Radio Solent with Julian Clegg on Friday 14th June at approx 7.25am talking about the book. Also, will be doing a book signing at The Book Shop, Lee on Solent on Saturday 15th June between 11am - 2pm. Hope to see you there.
This is what Ruth and I were on about last night. Will keep an eye out for the next Friday evening dance. Sue.
I moved to Alton just over a year ago and I was hoping to find a local dance class to join so I was delighted when Jeremy and Kate started their Swing & Smooth classes at the fabulous Bell House. I have tried various classes over the years but this is the first time I have found dance tutors that are so encouraging, friendly and knowledgeable. Jeremy and Kate make learning a new dance so much fun. As a beginner the new routines can be quite a challenge for me and I'm sure that I am a challenge to them! but they are so good at putting you at ease, I only wish I could go more often.
