Ash is a true hip hop girl, but it seems a reggae-inspired dance style may have stolen her heart!

Ash is a true hip hop girl, but it seems a reggae-inspired dance style may have stolen her heart!

When an agent comes to Silver Shoes looking for the best junior dancers, everyone wants to strut their stuff. Although Ash acts like the class clown, she is desperate to get an interview. Luckily, her smooth dancehall moves grab the agent’s attention, and faster than Ash can ‘butterfly’ she has a shot at dancing in the coolest hip hop star’s new music video. But while Ash normally brings the attitude, on set her old Dance Art enemies are putting her off her game. Will Ash find her ‘flava’, or will dancehall be her downfall?

Praise for Silver Shoes 6: Lights, Camera, Dance!

“Silver Shoes is a single-author series aimed at primary school girls. It's also the name of the best dance school in town, and the series itself is about dance, with each chapter book focused on different types (previous ones include jazz, ballroom, and of course ballet). In this, Ash is a hip-hop fan who's in a bit of a tizz because an agent (from Dream Big Academy) is looking to sign up some junior talent but will Ash's tomboyish charms win her over? Its large, easy-to-read font, and contemporary references, will appeal to aspiring dancers. Samantha-Ellen Bound also helpfully includes a glossary of choreography terms.”
