For as long as she can remember, Clare and her family have had a dream: Someday Clare will be a dancer in City Ballet Company. For ten long years Clare has been taking ballet lessons, watching what she eats, giving up friends and a social life, and practicing until her feet bleedall for the sake of that dream. And now, with the audition for City Ballet Company right around the corner, the dream feels so close.
But what if the dream doesnt come true? The competition for the sixteen spots in the company is fierce, and many wont make it. Talent, dedication, body shape, sizeeverything will influence the outcome. Clares grandfather says she is already a great dancer, but does she really have what it takes to make it into the company? And if not, then what?
Told through passionate and affecting poems in Clares own voice, On Pointe soars with emotion as it explores what it means to reach for a dreamand the way that dreams can change as quickly and suddenly as do our lives.
