Once upon a time there was a girl named Scarlett. She was a very straight and innocent girl. Once she was watching a dance concert of ballerinas, she was glad to see them. She also wanted to be like them and dance and dance and dance! But wondered how may I do this? No classes, no shoes! She was worried.. She thought about it and came up with an idea. She had a pair of shoes which were kind of looked like ballet shoes! She was happy and decided to start the practice from tomorrow. The next fine day, while returning home she saw a poster of a ballet school! She smiled and took the poster with her. In the evening she went to the address and saw a big school, she was very happy! She went inside walked across the empty corridors. She opened a door slowly, and saw a beautiful ballerina dancing but, suddenly a fat lady came . She asked her, are you here for the admission girl? Scarlett replied scared, yes! Madame! She lead her to a room where other girls were also waiting. She waited for her turn patiently. And finally it was her turn! She was all ready and energized. She went inside and gave all her information required. But the lady who was taking the information she asked her a question, Why do you want to learn ballet? Scarlett replied bravely, Because I-I love it and want to learn it! The lady smiled and told, you will understand it by the time. And gave her the notice of the timing and the dates..

The next fine day, she merrily walked to the ballet school. She took the shoes and the dress. A few days later there was a ballet test. Scarlett was a little bit nervous. She told herself, everything will be fine I can do it! She did the test, but failed this happened many times but she didn’t give up! She stood bravely! A old lady was impressed with her bravery and asked her to have some coaching from her. Scarlett happily agreed. She gave Scarlett a challenge to pluck apple from a tree. Scarlett gave a smile and said it is easy I can do it easily. The lady smiled back and said I know Scarlett, you have to jump and take it, but do you see that puddle. Without a splash of water you need to get the apple for me. Scarlett was stumped but she accepted the challenge! She tried a lot but the water splashed again and again. It was evening now. She took a deep breath and jumped and grabbed the apple and landed on her pointe without a splash of water! The lady clapped and made her some apple pie. She teached all the lessons by the time. Now she was confident! Now there was a ballet test! And there was a new girl in the test today! The test went on nicely. But Scarlett only scored nicely and was appreciated by the examiners. The new girl named, Rosy was now jealous of her. She always tried to create barriers in her way. But she always escaped. But now the tests were over and there was a final ballet concert with Liana, the famous ballet dancer in that city. They had to give a test to prove that they are ready. At last the judges were landed up with Scarlett and Rosy. Now they had a dance battle tomorrow. Both were preparing hard. But Rosy wanted to win so she challenged Scarlett to a dance battle. They both had great moves. While dancing, they reached a big and a wide staircase, where the trainers and the old lady were standing. Rosy did a great move of 2 stairs. Scarlett took a deep breath and did a big jump which landed her straight to the end of the staircase. Everyone’s eyes were wide opened. Rosy was also shocked and asked for forgiveness. Now, Rosy and Scarlett are good friends. Scarlett got a chance to dance with Liana also.
