Stenetta Anthony Author Interview

Ella Learns to Dance follows a young elephant girl who dreams of being a ballet dancer even when others discourage her. What was the inspiration for your story?

After hearing a story about a professional ballet dancer and her challenges. She was told she did not have the proper body image to be a ballerina.

What educational aspects were important for you to include in this children’s book?

Some of the ideas suggested in the book are: (always be proud of yourself, teach them to deal with frustrations when learning a new skill and how some children can relate to Ella’s story when friends do not always support their dream).

Are there any emotions or memories from your own life that you put into your characters life?

One memory comes from learning modern dance in high school. Since I never considered myself as a graceful dancer. It was often difficult to learn the dance moves, sometimes not wanting to attend the class.

What is the next book that you are working on and when will it be available?

Ella Learns to Dance is the first book in her series, so I am currently working on the 2nd and 3rd books respectively.
