Overview

Julie, Lucy, and Alia are best friends who share the same passion: dance! A new year of classes has begun and this year, in addition to their regular ballet and modern dance classes, the three girls are introduced to a new style of dance — African folk! Powered by deep percussion-based music, this style is unlike anything they've ever tried before. While the girls enjoy their new art form, problems at home and in the classroom threaten to cause them to have to stop taking their dance classes. Can the girls balance their studies and their extracurricular activities, or will they have to give up dancing for good?

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Quick and witty pacing will keep readers on their toes.” —PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

“An entertaining and enjoyable read for dance fans and graphic-novel devotees.” —KIRKUS

“The art has a great sense of movement, particularly important when conveying such an active endeavor. Plus, attention is paid to their outfits, an important part of creating a realistic visual world for young women.” —COMICS WORTH READING

Library Journal
Originally published in France, this enjoyable, lighthearted series stars three energetic wannabe ballerinas: blond Julie, Alia with dark hair and skin, and rounder redhead Lucie. The three friends take dance classes, go to school, flirt with boys in dance class and at school, and deal with individual problems—like Lucie’s divorced parents who compete to be “best” at whatever they do for her. This volume introduces the dancers to an ethnic dance style with new instructor Fatou, backed up by dreadlocked drummer Sam. The format, a collection of one and two-page mini-stories with punch-lines at the end, makes for starting anywhere reading. The kids display a variety of styles and body types.
