Isabelle is excited about starting her first year at the Anna Hart School of the Arts! But she can't help comparing herself to her older sister, Jade, who attends the same school and is an amazing ballerina. Isabelle's other classmates are equally talented, and she starts wondering whether she really belongs at her new school.
