Some of the fondest memories from my childhood include the years that I was enrolled in dance class. I loved ballet and jazz so much that I took my training and lessons with me beyond high school and even danced for several years in college. And because it’s the end of the school year, it also means that it’s recital season for many little girls (and some boys, too).
With recital season in full swing, coupled with my love for dance, one show that comes to mind for Music Monday is, Angelina Ballerina: The Next Steps, which airs on PBS Kids. The show is based on the award-winning children’s book series by author Katharine Holabird and illustrator Helen Craigre. Angelina Ballerina: The Next Steps debuted this past September in full CG animation, incorporating elements of choreography from top dance organizations from American Ballet Theatre to Alvin Ailey.
