This book introduces us to Cassie Brown and her friends at Redwood Ballet School. Cassie originally does ballet classes in a little hall, much like many girls all around the country, when her teacher suggests she try for the prestigious ballet school. Cassie’s parents are not sure it is the right thing for her, but Cassie is determined. This is a realistic insight into what such auditions and tests entail – as Cassie witnesses parents lose their temper because their child fails and other children cry as they are told they have not succeeded. However, Cassie gains one of the precious places, as does Emily, who she meets during the auditions. Just getting into the school though, does not mean that life is about to become easy. There is normal school work alongside dance, some of the girls suffer homesickness and standards are very high. Although Cassie becomes immediate friends with one of her room-mates, Becky, as well as Emily, she has problems with the stuck up Amanda Renwick.

This first book takes Cassie and her friends through the beginnings of their life at dance school, with all its ups and downs, intrigues, difficulties and relationships with teachers and classmates. In this first book, Cassie and her friends celebrate Halloween and prepare for the Christmas production. My daughter loves her ballet lessons and, although she has no ambitions to go to ballet school, she really enjoyed this book. It is ideal for confident readers of 7+ to read alone and will appeal to ballet fans and girls who enjoy books set at boarding school. The next book in the series is, “Ghost at the Ballet School.”

When you arrive at Redwood Ballet School with Cassie, you are entering a girl’s dream world of boarding school, midnight feasts and a stranger that isn’t quite what he seems. This delightful book is a timeless classic children’s story. We are introduced to the main characters as they nervously dance at the rigorous and ruthless auditions, hoping to be accepted into such a prestigious school. By the time the first term begins, we know which girls we would trust as friends and which we would avoid.

The main character, Cassie, is an energetic girl bursting for an adventure so leads her friends, Emily and Becky, into all sorts of mischief that doesn’t go unnoticed by the rather severe principal Miss Wrench. Amanda, the aloof and rather smug perfectionist creates some tension among the girls then Cassie risks it all for the sake of the elderly Mrs Allingham.

Mal Lewis Jones clearly adores the ballet having been a lead dancer herself, so the detail about lessons and performances creates a vivid picture of life at a ballet school. Any girl around the ages of eight to ten years old will love romping through this first adventure of Cassie and her friends and will be guaranteed to want to move straight on to the second story in the series of six, Ghost at the Ballet School.
