Doone's father would never allow a son of his to have ballet lessons, and his brothers think he's a sissy. But Doone has passion and ambition beyond his years, and knows he can succeed, if only he is given the chance.

If he can make it into Queen's Chase, Her Majesty's Junior Ballet School, he'll show them all ...
