I'm not a fan of the fact that how she got to and from the Savoy seems to have no rules or explanation. Even in fantasy stories, there's is some sort of way to explain what is going on.
I also didn't like that her "superpower" was whining so shrilly that people left her alone. That's really not something you want to encourage in children.

I did not like this story. I understand what Ms. Campbell wanted to do, but the story she told was not necessary to tell the sto Author: Bebe Moore Campbell; Illustrated: Richard Yarde; Picture Book; Grades: Stompin' at the Savoy follows Mindy, a 9 year old girl who becomes nervous just before her dance recital.
Campbell wanted to do, but the story she told was not necessary to tell the story, I think, she wanted to tell. The illustrations, however, were very creative and made me want to see more. Campbell was inspired by her good friend Eric Carle on this one. Mar 01, Roberta rated it liked it. This book is a fantasy created by a young girl who is facing her fears about performing in a dance recital.
Her fantasy takes place at the famous Savoy Ballroom in Harlem in the 20's. It is there that she is inspired to dance the Lindy Hop on stage by listening to the music of Benny Goodman and Chick Webb. The story is charming but the illustrations by Richard Yard also add much appeal.
They looks fuzzy as dream images might and are in bright, bold colors. I wish the book had explained how he was This book is a fantasy created by a young girl who is facing her fears about performing in a dance recital. I wish the book had explained how he was able to produce them.
A little history about the Savoy is found at the end of the book. Jun 27, Janelle rated it really liked it Recommends it for: dancers, fans of swing, those with stage fright.

This movie should also be used by dance instructors for educational purposes for their students. The dance choreography for this movie was just fantastic. I can not dance like that anymore but seeing this movie made me get up and move around alittle with joy. This movie also would be great to show to senior citizens - I know it would bring back some memories for them especially the ones that are 70 plus.
My mom would enjoy it - she was a swinger - she is now 78 years old. God is Blessing her. I am hoping that this movie will be shown again soon on lifetime or whatever cable or TV channel that will show it.
