At the Nutcracker School of Ballet in Harlem, young dancers learn to chassé, plié, and jeté with their Sugar Plum Sisters-but things don’t always go to plan! As the girls encounter challenges both on and off stage, they’ll need the support of their classmates to carry them through with aplomb.
Perfectionistic Jerzey Mae desperately wants to be a ballet dancer. But she’s frustrated by her own lack of talent–and by her friends’ jokes about her terrible dancing. Things get even worse when her little brother Mason attends her ballet class, totally embarrassing Jerzey in front of her prima ballerina idol, Miss Camilla Freeman. When Jerzey learns that Miss Camilla will be attending their recital, she’s determined not to make a fool of herself again. But her efforts to learn her dance are continually thwarted–until she finds help in a very unexpected place.
