This is an E-book that is mainly aimed at little dancing divas aged 8–12, this enchanting, glamorous and very different book makes you get up off your feet and dance! Great for kids who love strictly or just dancing.

This is written by a dance-trained fashion model, it tells the story of 10-year-olds Carla and Leo who find a magical dance school and its teacher, the beautiful and very mysterious Miss Paulina. She invites them on a fast-paced journey around the world where they learn brand new dances and discover the history and cultures of each of the countries these dances come from.


Here, straight from the developer, are the app’s best features:

Their journey covers ten 
styles: the waltz, foxtrot, swing, merengue, mambo, cha cha, rumba, salsa, tango, and samba. For each style, Miss Paulina provides its cultural and geographical origin as well as rhythmic step patterns. In the enhanced E-Book, each page has its own distinctive look, feel and sound that evokes the vivid story behind each dance.

The voices of Carla and Leo are by actress/model Devon Aoiki and former NBA player Baron Davis and they tell the tale through ten of the most popular ballroom dances that are shown using over 50 vibrant illustrations by renowned fashion illustrator Thierry Perez and adapted for the app by Grab. These dances include: The Waltz, Cha Cha, Rumba, Foxtrot, Swing, Merengue, mambo, Salsa, Tango, Samba and also a dance class at the beginning and end of the book. This is an excellent and beautifully made book which all budding little dancers will love to read and enjoy with their parents.

The artwork is noting short of superb and the story itself is a wonderfully magical tale that kids are sure to take in and love.

Overall, this is an excellent book that finds itself in a very decent app. Well worth a buy.
