Synopsis

Complete Ballet Stories by Jean Ure

A book which captures the passions and obsessions in the lives of hopeful young dancers. Rose and Nicola Bruce are two talented but very different sisters who have to overcome the problems of jealousy and uncertainty before thay can begin to realise their ambitions, while Jamie Carr faces the problem of unexpectedly getting involved in the world of ballet and having to face his friends at school. In Star Turn, Karen Anders and Jessamy Hart face true tests of their determination and dedication. Three star-struck tales written with warmth and understanding and bound into one inspiring volume. A treat for all true ballet lovers.
