Pardon My French – It’s the Language of Ballet: The Adventures of Lilly Nilly

Enter the mind of spunky and precocious six-year-old Lilly Nilly. As a dance student, her self-appointed mission is to figure out what the heck ballet –– and coincidentally life –– are all about and share this insight with other kids.

Young girls will find Lilly’s stories funny and very relatable, especially if they are ballet students themselves. Adults will find her sharp wit and strong-willed spirit a charming reminder of just how empowering a joyful approach to life can be.


Nancy Paris is an alumna of The Juilliard School and has performed professionally across the US and Canada. As a dancemaker, she has choreographed industrials and private events in New York City, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Atlantic City, Palm Springs, and Puerto Rico. Most of the incidents in her stories are based on personal experience, with the names changed to protect the innocent.

Nancy lives in Manhattan, NY with her husband Charles Yurick and loves writing and drawing because you can do it sitting down!
