Read by Joshua Burnham, Principal Dancer/Assistant Ballet Master (Manassas Ballet Theatre) A lively and encouraging picture book celebrating boys who love to dance, from the renowned American Ballet Theatre.

Boys who love to dance are center stage in this encouraging, positive, rhyming picture book about guys who love to pirouette, jeté, and plié. Created in partnership with the American Ballet Theatre and with the input of their company’s male dancers, here is a book that shows ballet is for everyone. This Hylton at Home Story Corner is read by Joshua Burnham, Principal Dancer/Assistant Ballet Master (Manassas Ballet Theatre).

The Hylton Performing Arts Center and the Prince William Public Library System have joined forces to continue Hylton at Home Story Corner, a virtual performing arts story time this spring. The goal of this virtual story time is to increase awareness of different performing art forms and artists through books. Each story time will be pre-recorded and premiere on both the Hylton Center and Library’s social media channels at 10:15 a.m. on the third Saturday of the month. The library will prepare reader advisories for each book that list similar books children and families may want to explore.
