Summary
True story of five little girls with cerebral palsy or other physical disabilities who were determined to become ballerinas
Summary
Meet Abbey, Monica, Nicole, Shekina, and Veronica, five little girls who only dreamed of wearing tutus and dancing onstage until their physical therapist began teaching a ballet class tailored to their needs. Each of these girls has cerebral palsy or a similar disability that makes controlling her muscles a challenge, but they all work hard and -- with some help -- perform their first dance recital beautifully. -- Description by Ellen Foreman
