What is the popularity of Angelina Ballerina?

Angelina Ballerina is a popular literary and television children’s characters.  Over the last 28 years the Angelina Ballerina brand has proven to be a solid favourite with children and parents.

The Angelina brand was first introduced in 1983 as a children’s book. Since then, over 6 million books have been sold worldwide. In addition to the critically acclaimed story books, Angelina Ballerina dances her way into the hearts of young  children on ABC, TVNZ and Netflix in the CG-animated series, Angelina Ballerina The Next Steps, and has a thriving consumer products program based on the new look including dolls, apparel, publishing, apps and the specialty toy market. In 2012, the Angelina Ballerina Big Audition show featuring the Royal New Zealand Ballet toured across Australia and New Zealand to nearly sold out audiences.

What support and marketing assistance will I get as a partner studio?

You will receive an Angelina animated video, logo, pictures and a blurb to feature on your studio website and social media so new students will know that you are an Angelina studio.  Partner studios will get an opportunity to hire the official Angelina Ballerina costume to appear in their studio once each year.
