Meet four very different girls who all have one thing in common - they love to dance!
Eleanor Irvin is ten years old, and dancing is her everything. Tap, ballet, lyrical, and ballroom - she's tried it all. But her favourite style, by far, is jazz.
When Miss Caroline, the owner of Silver Shoes Dance Studio, announces she will be selecting dancers to perform in the upcoming Jazz Groove Dance Competition, Ellie is over the moon! There's only one problem, she's not so good at auditions. Actually, there might be a few problems - Ellie's dance enemy, Jasmine, seems determined to ruin her chances and the new girl, Ashley, is really talented. Will Ellie be able to overcome her nerves and hold on to the spotlight?
