About

A Ballet Education recently published a blog post that went viral, concerning race and preference in ballet. Because of the response people have asked for A Ballet Education to bring this book to life featuring different ethnicities and ideas inside the Nutcracker. Because we are so close to the Nutcracker Season, the book is going to be rushed in manufacturing. I am hoping that there are enough people out there who want or need this book to come to life.

Each book will be 10x10", hardcover with a book jacket and approximately run 44 pages.

A portion of each sale of the book will go towards a scholarship fund or donated to a scholarship organization to help furthering the education of young ethnic dancers. 

The books in the long run that I would like to publish are:
The Nutcracker
The Sleeping Beauty
Cinderella
Swan Lake
Twelve Dancing Princess 

Risks and challenges

The challenge is working with an editor, publisher and illustrating an entire children's book in a week. This is going to be hard, but doable because I am passionate about this project.
