- Drina Adams (whose real name is Andrina Adamo and whose mother was the famous dancer Elizabeth Ivory) is back again at the Dominick School in London after a holiday in Italy - ready for a term's hard work.
- But when Drina goes to see her friend Rose in the country she pulls a muscle and there is no dancing for Drina for a few weeks. Instead she has the chance to act in Barrie's Dear Brutus - enjoyable and exciting, although acting will always be second-best for Drina. Then she has the superb luck to dance at the Edinburgh Festival as Little Clara in Casse Noisette and Rose goes along too, as understudy.
