The seventh title in the lively Ballerina Dreams series, written by trained dancer and successful author, Ann Bryant. The Central School of Ballet has been involved in the creation of these realistic stories capturing the dreams and dramas of three budding ballerinas. Synopsis Poppy, Jasmine and Rose are thrilled to have won parts in a professional production of The Nutcracker. But with demanding rehearsals and a whole host of new people to work with, the girls face many challenges, both in their dancing and to their friendships. Worst of all, when they most need her advice, Miss Coralie is ill in hospital, and no one knows if she will even be better in time to see their special Christmas Eve performance.
Ann Bryant is the author of four successful series for young girls: Ballerina Dreams, The Cafe Club, Make Friends With and Step-Chain, currently in production with ITV. As a child, dancing was her passion and she brings an inside knowledge of the world of ballet to her writing.
