Hit Entertainment has teamed with AB Studio Licensing to licence a nine-month Angelina Ballerina Dance Academy curriculum to dance studios across the US and Canada.
Beginning in the autumn, the 34-week programme is inspired by the CG animation Angelina Ballerina The Next Steps, and will focus on one story book per month.
Targeted at children aged three to six, it teaches beginner ballet at two levels.
The character's voice will guide aspiring dancers through their movement lessons, with the programme incorporating music from The Next Steps plus custom music developed by dance education specialist Beverly Spell and composer Scott Killian.
Participating studios will also have access to an array of Angelina Ballerina posters and signage, costume items such as tutus and mouse ears and placement mats.
To date, over 100 studios across North America have applied to become Angelina Ballerina Dance Academy partner studios.
"The Angelina Ballerina Dance Academy is a perfect opportunity for studios to attract new students by partnering with a household name in dance," said Sam Beckford, licensing director at AB Studio Licensing.
