About this title


Tanya, the irrepressible heroine of Dance, Tanya, returns to join her new friend Emily, a young girl with a special talent for dancing, in a remarkable pas de deux at the winter dance recital.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 3-As in Dance, Tanya (1989) and Bravo, Tanya (1992, both Philomel), this little girl's passion for movement shines through here, and she dances in her own, sometimes unconventional, way. She's the wiggliest in the class, always at the end of the line, but finds joy in everything about ballet. When a newcomer, Emily, joins the class, she does everything properly. On a walk through the park, Tanya teaches her new friend to find many inspirations to dance, and Emily teaches Tanya how to do a cabriole. Neither girl is alone anymore, and their friendship reinforces their complementary skills. Ichikawa's watercolors are equally deft in depicting Tanya's free spiritedness and Emily's grace. Like the girls, her lines are always in motion, and Tanya and Emily leap off the pages. The palette is brighter than in the first two books, and Ichikawa uses grays to paint the offsets, which show the companions working and practicing before they actually perform the steps. This book has a larger format than the previous two and reflects that Tanya, too, has grown. Children will be inspired to create their own steps and encouraged by the idea that there is room for more than one style of expression.
