SYNOPSIS

Isabelle (Erin Pitt) is an inspired dancer with a flair for fashion design. She's thrilled to be studying ballet at a prestigious performing arts school, but is surrounded by talented classmates-and she can't help feeling that she's always in the shadow of her "perfect" older sister, Jade (Grace Davidson). So when her idol, a famous ballerina, encourages her to audition for a professional ballet, Isabelle isn't sure she can land the role. And when a competitive classmate starts pointing out Isabelle's every mistake, her confidence sinks even further. Can she find the courage to step into the spotlight and discover her own way to shine? Melora Hardin of the hit television show "The Office" also stars in this "sweet story that teaches the benefits of hard work, determination and focus" (Julie Kertes, L.A. Parent Magazine).
