Carla and Leo's World of Dance [Source: Amazon]
Carla and Leo's World of Dance is a children's book about ballroom dance written by Agatha Relota and illustrated by Thierry Perez:
"Carla and Leo are ten-year-old best friends who chance one day upon a magical dance school. The dance instructor—the elegant Miss Paulina—invites them on a fascinating journey to Austria, the United States, the Caribbean, Argentina, and Brazil, where they learn about the dances and cultures of each. The most popular dances are all illustrated and explained, from the classic waltz to the foxtrot and swing, from merengue, mambo, cha-cha, and rumba to salsa, samba, and tango."
At a recent book signing, Agatha Relota had this to say about Carla and Leo's World of Dance:
"I decided to write a story to introduce children to ballroom dancing, the history, the culture, the music. To get kids interested and teach them it is something modern. They can learn geography, history, music, everything through the book."
