Princess Naomi Helps a Unicorn by Once Upon a Dance
Unicorns and Horses and Snakes, oh my!
Interactive movement wrapped up in a charming story of sibling angst, anger management, compassion, and triumph. Grown-ups sit; kiddos move and practice dance fundamentals.
This is the fourth of the Dance-It-Out stories, pandemic creations by an award-winning dance teacher and her Ballerina daughter.
Fed up with her annoying sister, Naomi storms out of the castle, only to discover a unicorn in need of help. With a sense of purpose, she quickly forgets her anger.
Ballerina Konora is featured on each page as optional movement mentor to help readers connect with movement.
Konora is an apprentice with Ballet Idaho and previously danced with Pacific Northwest Ballet’s Professional Division. Growing up, she danced iconic roles such as Sugar Plum Fairy and Cinderella.
Konora’s mother taught creative movement and ballet for decades and was honored to be chosen and recognized by her local City Council (2014) for embodying the spirit of partnership and commitment to children in our community for her work with young dancers. She’s breathed dance from every angle: child to pre-professional to adult ballet student, zoom student, dance teacher, dance mom, competition mom, ballet-school parent-guilder, audience member, recital planner, business owner, and board member.
