Description

Diana Dances (Hardcover)
By Luciano Lozano

Diana is struggling in school. She’s bored. She can’t concentrate. And she really doesn’t like math.

Diana visits the doctor after her mother receives a call from a concerned schoolteacher, but the family doctor finds nothing amiss. It’s only when Diana hears the soft musical notes filling the psychologist’s office that her body begins swaying rhythmically and the correct diagnosis can be made: Diana is a dancer!

This wonderfully illustrated picture book debut showcases Luciano Lozano’s modern yet timeless style, making for a story that readers will want to return to again and again. Elements of diversity woven throughout the story send subtle yet powerful messages of inclusivity and body positivity to young readers.

While Diana Dances is sure to resonate with budding dancers, its wonderful tribute to the need for self-expression, the power of movement, and the importance of self-esteem is universal. Diana’s joy at finding her creative outlet is infectious, making Lozano’s fearless heroine a sure-to-be favorite with children. The verdict is in: Diana is delightful!

History

Ballet

In classic or contemporary ballet, dancing may tell a story, express a mood, or simply reflect the music in movement. Ballet as part of staged performances originated in the Italian Renaissance courts of the 15th and 16th centuries and from there spread to France. The creation of classical ballet as we know it today occurred during the reign of the art-loving French king Louis XIV in the mid-17th century. During the Romantic era, ballet technique evolved to express new ideas, most notably with women dancing en point, or on their toes, allowing them to appear weightless and otherworldly.
 
Among the choreographers who helped bring ballet into the modern age by exploring new visual and dramatic styles are George Balanchine, Antony Tudor and—bridging the worlds of classical dance and Broadway—Agnes de Mille and Jerome Robbins.
