Following ten-year-old Carla and Leo as they discover a magical dance school, Carla and Leo's World of Dance introduces young people to an eclectic variety of beautiful dances created around the world, from America to the Caribbean, Brazil, Argentina and more. Basic information on the history of each dance as well basics for trying them fill the pages of this upbeat guide with stark, sweeping illustrations. "The merengue is one of the easiest Latin dances to learn. You move your knees left, right, left, right while taking side-steps. This will make your hips move left and right. Let's put on some music." A superb choice for school and library collections seeking to broaden their range of their source material, Carla and Leo's World of Dance is highly recommended.
