This is a terrific new series of books that any aspiring dancer aged 7+ will love to read. Readers can share the life and dreams of 11 year old Zoe and her dancer friends at Ballet Academy as they work hard at their technique. The series will also provide a behind-the-scenes look at life in a ballet school. In Friends Old and New, Zoe discovers her wonderful teacher is leaving and has been replaced by someone new who has a very different style of teaching and dancing. Will Zoe and her friends enjoy ballet school quite as much? To view all the titles to date in the series click here.
Zoe and her friends are more than a little surprised when Madame Olenska announces that she's going to leave them for a month to visit her family in Russia. But their new teacher has a totally different approach to dancing – could it be an exciting opportunity, or a disaster waiting to happen?
If that wasn't enough, Lucas is offered the chance of a lifetime, Zoe is still seeing Roberto, but with Alissa facing a difficult problem, and Laila being so mean, it's a wonder they have any time for dancing!
