I Forgot to Tell You
The students of VIBA face a new ballet, potential scholarships, and increasing drama within the academy.
The students of Vancouver International Ballet Academy are preparing to perform the ballet Coppelia. A ballet about dolls, love, and trickery, Coppelia doesnâ€™t have a moral, and neither do the rehearsals. If Taylor, Julian, Alexandra, and Kaitlyn donâ€™t rise to meet the challenges this ballet is putting them through, they might not make it on stage. The dancers might be fully alive, but they have more than enough real-life drama to keep them busy. The casting of the principal role of Swanhilda keeps getting changed, but is it really about whoâ€™s the best dancer right now, or is something else influencing the casting decisions?
Summer school acceptances and rejections are in, but whoâ€™s telling the truth about where theyâ€™re going? And whoâ€™s coming back to VIBA after the summer?
