Storyline

Pauline, Petrova, and Posy Fossil live with Sylvia Brown, their guardian. Money is tight and as the story opens, three boarders - a garage owner, a retired English professor, and a dance teacher - come to stay. Theo Dane, the dance teacher, has the girls accepted at her school by the formidable Madame, and the three go on the stage to help raise money. Each discovers her talents - Pauline as an actress, Petrova in fixing engines, and Posy as a dancer. Written by Hilary Caws-Elwitt

Wonderful film!
5 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

I love this story. It's great for all girls but especially for dancers. I wish they would have shown more dancing in the movie but it did a really good job of portraying the passion dancers have for dance. I also loved how it portrayed the frustration dancers can sometimes suffer and how it feels to have dancers at different levels of ability who study together. The acting is beautifully done by the three young stars. I wish someone would air this on TV again, it would be great for PBS. It's not out on DVD as far as I can find. I'd love to buy it. You can buy it used at Amazon UK but it's a used video and I don't think it's the same format as we have in the U.S. I think that it would be well received if some network would air it and then release it on DVD. I don't want to see a remake of it as it was so great as is was. It could be remade but only as an English production as it really is an English story. I hate to say this but I'm afraid our American producers and directors would only wreck it. I can just imagine how they would dumb it down and try to use some bad Disney Channelesque kid actors and using modern music rather than period music and perhaps trying to move the story to more modern times or even changing the setting. I don't want to spoil anything so I'll just conclude by saying that if you get the chance you should watch this.
