About the Event

Celebrate every culture and every style of dance with a special reading of Luna Loves Dance by author Joseph Coelho. Then, grab your pencils and paper and join illustrator Fiona Lumbers in a spot of live drawing as she shows you how she brings Luna to life. And finally, see where Luna’s passion for dance comes from as professional dancer Molly Barton teaches dance moves that everyone can try!  

Don’t forget to have your drawing materials ready, and space to move around when you learn some new dance moves! When you register for this event, you will receive a confirmation email which includes a private link to watch the event on YouTube. 

About the Book

When Luna dances, she feels like the world’s volume turns up, like all colours brighten, like sunlight sparkles behind every cloud. But when she takes her dance exam she ducks, dives, spins and... falls. Luna thinks she can’t be a real dancer now. Can Luna’s family convince her otherwise?  

Buy your own signed copy of Luna Loves Dance from our friends at Tales on Moon Lane! Schools can order direct from Tales on Moon Lane for bulk buy discounts. Not only will you be supporting a multi award-winning independent bookshop, but supporting charity too! 10% of all sales will be donated to Campaign for Learning to help us continue our mission to champion lifelong learning.

Luna Loves Dance comes from the team that brought us Luna Loves Library Day, Luna Loves Art, and Luna Loves World Book Day. This event is support by Andersen Press.
