The Book

Hugo Dances is a 32-page, full-colour children’s book.

The rhythmic story has movement – just like dance – and follows Hugo’s journey through longing to start Ballroom Dancing, to questioning whether he ‘fits’, and uncovering the truth about what being a dancer is really about. 

This book is 3 years in the making. It began as a funny story Hugo liked to hear about his determined and impassioned pleas to become a ballroom dancer, and slowly turned became a collaborative project between one Mum who learned some lessons and a little boy who loves writing (and dancing!)
