about this item

Miss Rosie’s Academy of Dance is a very special school for talented kittens - so Annie Twinkle-toes is absolutely thrilled when she is accepted. Follow the shy little kitten in her first week at Miss Rosie’s Academy. It is a week full of ballet (in fact, of all sorts of dancing), learning and most importantly, making new friends.

Annie Twinkle-toes and her fellow dancing cats will enthral all little girls (and some little boys) especially those who love dancing and kittens.Miss Rosie’s Academy of Dance will appeal primarily to 3-8 year olds. 

- All kittens drawn doing ballet are in true classical positions with correct ballet technique  (alignment, turn out, pointed toes, arm positions correctly shaped/placed).-Ballet vocabulary referring to basic ballet steps and positions are included in story.-Story runs through school week in chronological order, mentioning each day of the week as it comes (helping children learn days of the week).

-The Academy clock showing the correct class time is shown on all pages which depict the kittens commencing a new lesson (familiarise children with telling the time on an analogical clock).

-References to a real traditional ballet (Sleeping Beauty), with pictures of costumes (Blue-bird and Aurora), that are faithful to the original ballet.  These references also mention famous conductors and dates that are correct.

There is a strong message in the story about working hard at school/ dancing but also lessons about how important it is to smile, say hello and make new friends.
