“The choreography is graceful, then strong.
It’s like I’m melting,
then getting zapped with electricity,
then flowing across the floor.
To the final plié.”
Clare loves to dance, but with only sixteen positions available and so many dancers auditioning, will she make it into the City Ballet corps? Even though she’s grown four inches in the last year?
Her parents both dream of it for her. Her grandpa thinks she's already achieved her dream.
Read this free-verse novel to find out what Clare decides her dream is.
