Review

“This is an excellent series for all ballet-mad girls of 7+ – they will thoroughly enjoy the boarding school setting with the added interest of it being a ballet school. It’s the summer term at Starlight Academy and Cassie is looking forward to choreographing a dance for The Sound of Music. There are friendships to build too, and girls who need Cassie’s help… until a dramatic trip to a cave by the sea changes everything. A series which combines the best traditions of boarding school and ballet.” Parents in Touch

 

“And there’s more excitement and drama at exotic Starlight Academy, a fairy tale castle by the sea where dreams come true for girls with a passion for performing.

It’s the summer term and Cassie March is looking forward to getting back to her boarding school, Starlight Academy, and choreographing the Liesel and Rolf duet for the big production of The Sound of Music.
