STARS: A New Series by Laura & Luke Jennings

Via Press Release:

STARS is the first title in a new series from Puffin Books in the tradition of Ballet Shoes. It follows Jess, Ash, Foxy and Spike, four friends with very different talents who are boarders at the Arcadia School of Performing arts. They share dreams of stardom, but standards are high at Arcadia, and the competition is fierce. Will Jess and her friends make it? Read about their adventures in this new series by dance writer Luke Jennings and his daughter Laura.

An extract of the first book and trailer are available from Puffin’s STARS page. The series is ideally suited for girls aged 9 + who love acting, singing and dancing. Young readers will be able to follow the STARS Skills File for expert advice on how to follow their own dreams of performance and the stage.

We started The Ballet Bag in April 2009 with the mission to prove that ballet is not stuffy, old fashioned and inaccessible; that it is quite the opposite: relevant, fresh and topical. With the aim to Give Ballet a New Spin we try to show it under a different light. When writing our capsule biographies, ballet fact cards, review roundups and commentary on social media, we cross it over with other art forms and cultural references (pop culture, cinema, rock music – ie. other things we love!).
