How exciting! Write Dance is now in its third edition, and what a lovely book this is! It gives teachers exactly what they have been asking for; a detailed and clear resource to support the teaching of handwriting using a fully cursive style. As consultants, practitioners and trainers for Write Dance we are delighted to endorse this book, which combines the two previous 2nd edition publications, Write Dance and More Write Dance. - Nicole Barrons and Diana Strauss, Write Dance Training, UK

Write Dance is an exciting, innovative and fun programme which uses music and movement to introduce handwriting to children aged 5-8 years. Write Dance movements are designed to help children feel happy and comfortable with their bodies, improve their motor skills and provide a strong foundation for writing.

The 3rd edition of this bestselling book combines Write Dance and More Write Dance to bring you the ultimate one-stop Write Dance experience, and has been updated throughout with a brand new layout as well as new themes, music and video.

Ragnhild A. Oussoren is the creator of Write Dance. She developed the Write Dance approach in the Netherlands twenty five years ago and it has gone on to capture the imagination of children and teachers across Europe.
