Toronto Lit Up: Bharatanatyam in Ballet Shoes

March 25 at 7pm

Get Ticket

You are invited to the virtual launch of Bharatanatyam in Ballet Shoes by author Mahak Jain and illustrator Anu Chouhan on March 25 at 7 pm ET. During the virtual Toronto Lit Up event, Mahak and Anu will be discussing the forthcoming picture book published by Annick Press, and will be joined by Tharmeega for a pre-recorded Bharatanatyam performance!

Bharatanatyam in Ballet Shoes is a lively picture book about a girl who explores her love of dancing and her cultural identity. Paro comes from a dancing family. At home, she dances Bharatanatyam with her mom, and now she’s excited to learn ballet. But what if she can’t dance like the other kids in her class? Ballerinas move like fairies, while Bharatanatyam dancers seem like queens. Paro can’t be both…can she? You can get your copy of Bharatanatyam in Ballet Shoes from Another Story Bookshop here.

This event will take place virtually. Please click the register button above to join us on Zoom.
