Synopsis

Dreamer Ballerina by Sarah Rubin

Looking at her ratty-tatty, used-to-be-white, too-big high-top trainers, and then at her skinny chicken legs poking up from the ground, you’d never think that Casey Quinn could ever be a ballerina.

But just because Casey can’t do ballet in high-tops doesn’t mean she can’t dance. She has more grace in her little toe than the local pinky-pink, richer girls put together. Casey has a dream to dance in New York - and no-one is going to stop her.

Sarah Rubin's Dreamer Ballerina is a feel-good ballet story to rival Billy Elliot – and in the spirit of Noel Streatfeild’s Ballet Shoes.
