The final product will be a paperback version of my book Sherman Dances.  Funding will be used to help finish the process of creating, writing, illustrating and publishing the project.  

Sherman Dances is an invaluable resource that can help educators bring joy back into the classroom by teaching the fundamentals and tools used by all dancers.  

I include a concept or skill vital to dance, physical education and learning for life in each picture. Students will build confidence while copying Sherman's shapes, stimulate the brain with his rhythmic activities and find new heroes while copying famous dancers.

Risks and challenges

Time is the biggest obstacle. During my summer break from teaching I will have time to finish the project. Formatting problems and finishing or perfecting illustrations are possible delays. I will devote time and effort to ensure that the book is complete on my end. If formatting errors and other technological errors arise more than usual the project may be delayed longer. If setbacks occur I will keep you informed to the adjusted completion date. You will get your book!
