As the second semester at the Vancouver International Ballet Academy approaches, how will four maturing dancers face the new challenges that await them?
The Vancouver International Ballet Academy has opened its doors after the winter break, and everyone is back!
Julian is finding it difficult to concentrate on dance because of his family; his teachers think he could be great if he could just focus. Kaitlyn believes she’s the best dancer, but her body type is getting in the way of her (and her mother’s) dance ambitions, tempting her to lie. Alexandra is as focused as usual, but others don’t seem to understand how much time and energy she has to give to ballet if she wants to be the best. While Taylor is still criticized at VIBA, she’s getting a lot of positive attention from outside – especially from a recently retired Canadian ballerina who’s taken an interest in her and Julian.
Who will get noticed in competition and the spring seminar? Whatever happens, someone’s going to lose and someone’s going to win.
Teenaged readers who enjoy ballet will definitely appreciate this novel.- Resource Links (NL)
