The Magical Kingdom of Dance

The Alphamat by Mary Alpha Donnelly

"One picture is worth a thousand words." -- Mary Alpha Johnson

 



The Alphamat was designed by Mary Alpha Johnson as a fun, interactive way for little ballerinas to learn classic ballet moves in a classroom setting or at home. By using the characters and cues taught in the Encyclopedia of Dance, learning and pronouncing steps has never been easier or more fun!

Illustrated characters made familiar by the book are drawn in one of the eight circles that both tell a story and explain the movements of dance. The Alphamat is a wonderful educational tool for teachers and instructors to use as a curriculum base with the book.
