Super Awesome Storytime: North Augusta School of Dance
Join us Wednesday, January 17th @ 10:30 am for our special Super Awesome Storytime with The North Augusta School of Dance Inc. They will be reading “Firebird” by Misty Copeland and illustrated by Christopher Myers followed by dancing demos.
The North Augusta School of Dance is a dance studio focused on providing high-quality dance education. Their mission is to build character, self-confidence, discipline and teamwork through the dancing arts. They believe dance helps each child learn life lessons. Whether students pursue dance as a career or not, the lessons they learn about themselves through dance are enormous for whatever they pursue in life. They specialize in choreography for competitive dance, dance teams, auditions, shows and galas in addition to recreational weekly instruction for ages 2 to adult with qualified & nationally known staff. They feature a new studio with sprung floors, parents waiting room to observe each and every class, new sound equipment, professional Marley flooring and monthly performances to help support the community. Guest artists, workshops with some of the top names in the industry and national conventions are just some of the opportunities they provide.
Experience with them the highest quality of training while developing meaningful relationships that will last a lifetime!
And as always snack will be provided by our friends at The New Moon Cafe following storytime.
About the book:
In her debut picture book, Misty Copeland tells the story of a young girl–an every girl–whose confidence is fragile and who is questioning her own ability to reach the heights that Misty has reached. Misty encourages this young girl’s faith in herself and shows her exactly how, through hard work and dedication, she too can become Firebird.
Lyrical and affecting text paired with bold, striking illustrations that are some of Caldecott Honoree Christopher Myers’s best work, makes Firebird perfect for aspiring ballerinas everywhere.
