An excerpt from the first ever dance e-book, "Ruth."
An elderly woman named Ruth, moves back in with her family after they take her out of a retirement home for the first time in many years. As her family experiences tough times, Ruth is suddenly transported into an alternate universe where she is engulfed into a world full of movers.
This first-of-it's-kind dance experience will feature 9 chapters, each accompanied by reading, beautiful illustrations, and cinematic video. These videos will comprise of 35+ total minutes of film starring Keone & Mari, 200+ incredible dancers from all over the world, beautiful locations in 5 different countries, and of course... dance. Both reading and watching will be crucial to the experience as the writing and illustrations take place in Ruth's own world, while the film and dancing will take place in the alternate dimensional world. All connected by only one character... Ruth.
