Oti first showcased the project on her Instagram story, as she uploaded a first glimpse of the book’s cover.

The dancer wrote “special announcement” followed by a swipe up link to pre-order a copy on Amazon.

The online retailer described the picture book as a “celebration” of dance and movement for kids.

Oti also shared a photo of herself wearing a gorgeous turquoise jumper, while holding a copy of the book on her Instagram page.

Underneath she typed: “I actually can’t believe I’m holding it in my hands!!!!! 

“Being in lockdown we had so much time to think, to reflect, to write and you prepare ourselves for the unknown.

“And I feel so filled with gratitude that @walkerbooksuk have been so open hearted to allow me to write, @samara_hardy for beautiful illustrations, @antonyread and @lauransinclair for being absolute rockstars and my husband @mariusiepure who’s been a massive support through all my ideas at 3am in the morning.

“And my family who inspire and motivate me… oh wow! #feelingblessed #dancewithoti #dancebook #kidsbooks #learntodance.”(sic)

Her fans were quick to throw their support behind her latest project in the comment section.

One wrote: “My daughter will be so happy.”

Another replied: “Can’t wait to get this for my little girl.”

A third commented: “It looks great congratulations.”
