Dancing in Thatha's Footsteps COVER - Sr

Publisher: Yali Books

Illustrator: Kavita Ramchandran

Varun is fascinated by bharatanatyam, the ancient classical dance that his sister, Varsha, is trying to perfect. He tries a few moves all by himself at home in secret, because, well, boys don’t dance, do they? But his grandfather, who was once a dancer, thinks otherwise. Will Varun sign up for dance lessons and follow in Thatha’s footsteps?

A story about not being afraid to be yourself.
