"Young girls dream of becoming ballerinas and going to the ball... but the heroines of this tale dispense with fairy godmothers and make their dreams come true through their own hard work and strength of character." - Pat St. Germain, The Winnipeg Sun
This behind-the-scenes documentary series follows nine
girls on a quest to land the coveted role of Clara in the Royal
Winnipeg Ballet's Nutcracker. The girls come from across Canada--gap-toothed 10-year-olds and willowy teens with ballerina dreams dancing
in their heads. In this "Canadian Idol" of the ballet world, ambitious
young dancers compete to share the stage with professionals, taking the
first pointed step in their own careers as dancers.
