Dancing on the Inside
Jenny Spark had always wanted to learn to dance ever since her parents gave her a DVD of “Swan Lake.” So now, Jenny is starting taking ballet classes, but when she gets into class, she realizes she is too afraid to dance in front of everyone. She thinks that if she messes up, everyone will laugh at her, so she tells the teacher she doesn’t feel so well, so she lets her sit out. When Jenny’s mom comes back, she asks Jenny, “How was ballet?” Jenny replies, “It was fine.” Her mom replies, “Are you sure? Because if you didn't like it, I can get a refund, but if you decide to take another lesson, I can’t.” Jenny nods and says, “Yeah, I'm sure.”
For the next couple of days, Jenny comes up with a risky plan. The next ballet lessons she has, she goes up to the teacher with a fake note saying, “Jenny was not feeling good the last few days and we took her to the doctors. They say she is too ill to dance but would it be ok if she sat out and watched for the next few weeks or so?” The teachers looked at Jenny and said, “You seem fine to me, I guess you can.” Jenny smiled on the inside. She was going to lie to her parents about ballet class, but would this plan work? Find out!
I really love “Dancing on the Inside” because I love to dance and I love ballet. It is a very interesting book and I think girls my age to at least thirteen would like this book. This is fun to read and some ballet moves they do in the book, you just have to look up!
