Lucy is a wonderful ballet dancer, the best in the class, and all she wants to be is a famous ballet dancer.
But there is one small problem – Lucy wears glasses and she doesn't believe that famous ballerinas should wear glasses.
Then a boy – Craig Spinetti – joins the class. Not only does he make fun of Lucy, but he has been chosen to play the Fairy Prince to her Fairy Princess at the end-of-year ballet concert.
Can things get any worse?
