Lisette enthusiastically starts her dance classes. She dress and practice at home, she only talks about dancers and steps that she wants to learn.
But Lisette is afraid of failure and hopes that everything will work out for her on the first try or She stop trying.
The first days are easy, but not so much later it is very difficult for the little girl to maintain a happy mood.
Other teammates advance better than her, but Lisette wants to be the best of all, she wants to stand out and be marked as the star.
