SUPERHEROES Dance Too is a new fully illustrated, 28-page children’s book, ideal for showing youngsters that even in difficult times when we are stuck indoors, dancing is great for their wellbeing.

Who is Superheroes Dance Too! for?

This new book is ideal for those aged 2 to 8. Children who love a superhero story, children who love to dance, and anyone who loves a happy ending with a positive message!

What’s the overview of the story?

With a bounce, clap, bounce-bounce, clap,

the coolest dance moves and a rhyming rap.

Can superheroes Boom and Snare save the day?

Can they help the children stuck indoors to shoo sadness away?

Follow Boom and Snare in their dance adventure,

cutting shapes, getting down, right, front and centre!

What inspired the writing of this book?

The idea for this book had been Author Jenny’s list of things she’d ‘I’d love to do one-day’ for some time. What better time than when a lot of us need a happy pick-me-up during a national lockdown, to get the wheels in motion and put her pen to paper! 

Jenny said: “As a proud dance teacher for over 20 years and director of an award-winning dance company, I wanted to use my knowledge and passion for dance in my books.

My Adventures of Boom and Snare series, and in particular this first book: Superheroes Dance Too, sets out to encourage a new generation of youngsters to give dance a try and help them to understand how incredible dance is for looking after mental and physical wellbeing.

For all the resilient youngsters who kept dancing throughout the 2020/2021 pandemic, for all the young aspiring dancers with big dreams, and for all those who simply perform acts of kindness, this book is for you.”

Jenny said: “I’m so proud to have my first book published and hope it inspires at least a few youngsters to continue to be kind, dance and be happy.

I never intended this book to be a business venture, aside from simply recouping the cost of the book’s creation and print costs, this book is wholeheartedly a project to share my love of dance and how great it is for our mental and physical wellbeing, with the next generation.”
