Pirouette to your dreams!

My Ballet Journal
By Monica Wellington with Lydia Wellington
Dover Publications: softcover activity book ISBN:10-0486781941for $4.99

A perfect inspirational journal and activity book for young dancers to record their progress and reinforce their lessons. Thirty charmingly illustrated pages are packed with practical checklists, motivational tips, fill-in-the-blanks, and a dictionary of terms every ballet dancer should know. A special place to note dance class highlights and goals, this book offers families a keepsake treasure.

Created together with my daughter Lydia, corps-de-ballet dancer with New York City Ballet, this is the journal she would have loved to have had when she was young, and which we hope will inspire other young ballet students on their journey to pursue their dancing dreams!
