According To Kit
Kit struggles with home-school until a substitute dance teacher shows up.
Luis is brilliant and gorgeous. He transforms her days …
Kit’s life was simple—farm work, school, and dance—until her beloved dance teacher, Ursula, gets sick and her mother decided to home school Kit because of an incident at school. Kit doesn’t know how she can possibly deal with her mother, the Lady of Sorrows, and she can’t stand not dancing. The senior students take over giving lessons at the dance studio, giving Kit some respite from her daily struggles with her mother. The arrival of Luis and Clara, professional dancers, who will serve as substitutes at the studio transform her days and give her hope. The new dance teacher is very supportive of Clara, even encouraging her to apply for a special dance school in Montreal and volunteering to take her to the competition and, personally, introduce her to the director and then Kit’s life gets really interesting.
