Title: Dance Divas: Showtime!
In this first book of the series, four friends are preparing for a dance competition. While they may bicker among themselves, they are committed to putting their best foot forward on the dance floor. Turns out the competition is heating up when an old rival of their dance teacher Miss Toni turns up with her City Feet Dance troupe and challenges the girls of Dance Divas. Will the rivalry between the teacher cause everyone to behave badly, or can the girls compete fair and square?
My daughter has always enjoyed The Cupcake Club series, so I was very excited to see that Sheryl Berk had come out with a series that touches on the world of dance competitions. I know quite a few young ladies who will find these books particularly relevant (none of them being my daughter who prefers cleats to ballet shoes.) While I can’t vouch for the authenticity of the dance competition sequences, it felt real to me. Berk does a solid job of writing an engaging story.
Girls who participate in dance competitions will particularly enjoy this series. However, ultimately it is a book about friendship, so girls who enjoy those books will like this new offering.
No the author is not Cheryl Burke from Dancing With the Stars.
