Langston is a basketball player who fell in love with ballet after attending an Alvin Ailey performance with his mom. He adored dance so much, he leaped and twirled everywhere. When a bully said, "boys don't dance like that," Langston looked visibly hurt, but confidently replied "I've seen them." A beautiful reminder to not lose sight of your dreams.
A little girl strolls through the city with her mom. She notices the rhythm all around her and feels it with her entire body. First she thinks about it, then feels it, sees it, and smells it. You'll see rhythm in her hands, hips, knees and more. A beautiful book about being surrounded by music and having music living inside of you.
Watch a little girl who fell in love with dance after discovering them on TV. She made her own ballet slippers and a tutu out of her mom's scarves.
