About Belluna’s Big Adventure in the Sky: A Dance-It-Out Creative Movement Story for Young Movers:
Belluna is a basketball player, sister, and daughter with one remarkable feature. While on a family outing, a storm sweeps Belluna up on a wild ride. As she is tossed about by the wind, Belluna discovers she can overcome her fear and embrace her uniqueness to take control of her movement and her mind.
Ballerina Konora joins each page with suggested actions to get kids moving alongside Belluna in her tale of level-headed tenacity and a celebration of individuality. Each Dance-It-Out! story is a movement-based children’s one-act ready for the imagination stage.
The quirky, whimsical adventure of self-discovery was created by an award-winning dance instructor, partnered with her award-winning, professional ballet-dancer daughter.

Once Upon a Dance’s mission is to provide kids movement, joy, and imagination. Their catalog includes three primary book series about dance and movement:
• Dance-It-Out Creative Movement Stories for Young Movers, for ages 4-7, offers kids a chance to take the imagination ‘stage’ alongside whimsical characters in quirky stories with Ballerina Konora as an optional movement guide.
• Dancing Shapes: Ballet and Body Awareness for Young Dancers, for ages 6-9, provides a glimpse into Ballerina Konora’s journey, a warm-up, mini-ballet lesson, and an exploration of detail and form.
• Konora’s Shapes: Poses for Creative Movement & Ballet Teachers provides images intended to be cut from the book for use in the classroom or at home—a brilliant resource for dance, physical education, and homeschool teachers.
The books are designed by a mother-daughter duo. Mom taught creative movement and ballet for decades and was recognized by her city council for “embodying the spirit of partnership and commitment to children in our community” for her work with young dancers. Daughter is an apprentice with Ballet Idaho and has danced with Pacific Northwest Ballet, Aspen Santa Fe Ballet, and Texture Contemporary Ballet.
