A favorite of my 10-year-old daughter, who loves dance. She thoroughly enjoyed it and was inspired to read other titles by this author.

"Dancing Shoes" is a necessity for every young dancer's bookshelf. A perfect blend of dance elements and pure well-written novel.

Life at Mrs. Wintle's School of Dancing is a big change for Rachel and her sister, Hilary. Tap lessons, musical comedy, singing lessons, acrobatics--it's a far cry from the quiet country life they led before Mother died. Now they're living in London with eccentric Aunt Cora Wintle, who's determined to turn them into members of her dance troupe, Wintle's Little Wonders.
But Rachel doesn't want to be a Little Wonder! She can't dance,and she'd rather die than wear the ruffly costume. Not only that, she doesn't want Hilary to be a Little Wonder either. Hilary is truly talented, and should be studying with the Royal Ballet!
To make matters worse, there's conceited cousin Dulcie. She's the school's star dancer and the apple of Aunt Cora's eye. And if there's one thing Dulcie hates, it's the thought that someone else might be as good a performer as she is...

My 12 year old daughter loves this book and the whole series by Noel Steatfeild. Series is a loose term here; they are connected but not the same characters, although some overlap.
