Ever since her grandparents gave her a DVD of "Swan Lake," twelve-year old Jenny Spark has wanted to be a dancer. But on her first day of ballet class, she suffers a panic attack and makes a horrifying discovery. She's terrified of dancing in front of the other kids, and as for actually performing for an audience? Forget it. Yet Jenny refuses to give up her dream. With determination and a little ingenuity, she finds ways to observe ballet classes without actually participating. She trains in the safety of her room, while hiding the truth from her parents. Then Jenny meets her exact opposite: Ara Reyes, an outgoing, spontaneous, and accident-prone girl who loves dancing but has always been overlooked. The girls' friendship blossoms as they help each other uncover their real talents. Ara's dancing takes a leap forward and Jenny discovers she has an amazing gift for choreography. With the support of the school's newest teacher, Jenny's original ballet might just make it on stage ... but will she? Charming and inspiring, "Dancing on the Inside" shows how pursuing our passions can often lead to wonderful and unexpected results.… (més)

Wonderfully inspiring tale of a young girl painfully shy, wanting to dance ballet. The friendships that she makes breaking out of her shell give every shy, awkward girl hope. ( )

I won this book from Librarything Member Giveaways - Thank You -
This is the lovely story of Jenny, a young girl who loves ballet and yearns to learn ballet but struggles with her shyness and fear of the spotlight. Her love of ballet as well as a friendship she develops help her to overcome her insecurities, and she is finally able to have her dream come true.
Jenny is such a beautiful, lovable character. Great book! ( )

After watching a DVD of The Nutcracker, 12-year-old Jenny convinces her parents to sign her up for ballet lessons. Unfortunately, Jenny cannot overcome her shyness enough to dance in front of others. But she persists, sitting in the room watching the other girls dance, even filming them. because, more than anything, she loves ballet even if she can only dance for herself.

This is a very sweet and charming story about a little girl's determination to follow her dreams despite her parent's protests, the teasing of others, but, most especially despite her own crippling fears. It is also about the value of friendship and the need to accept help to overcome the obstacles that keep us all from dancing in front of others.

This is a wonderful story, perfect for any little girl who dreams of learning to dance, especially if she is too shy to do it. ( )

An excellent story for the young girl reader. The story is about ballet and what it means to love to dance, friendship, rivalry - a big part in any dance class, and doing what you love. Since I have taken ballet all my life, I wanted to see the story unfold. ( )

The journey Strathy takes readers on as Jenny finds friendship, along with her real talent, and learns how to make her own dreams come true, is emotionally gripping, and the ballet world the author takes readers into is authentic and exciting enough to make even more girls decide that, perhaps, some form of dance is for them.
 
"Dancing On the Inside" is a fine and very much recommended read for younger readers who may be facing stage fright themselves.
