Lola looked at the other dancers, who were warming up and ready to practice. She could see Silvia and Ella admiring themselves in the mirror. They were so slender and tall. Then there was a small group of dancers, exercising on the barre. Suddenly, three boys came rushing into the room nearly knocking Lola over. They were the noisy trio as Miss Pringle called them. “Whoops sorry,” Nigel said to Lola, “you’re just so small we didn’t see you.” Click to hear me
Suddenly Mrs Pringle shouted at the top of her voice. “ Listen up now everyone next summer we will be performing the Silver Swan at this years winter festival, you will all take part.” Lola got scared she couldn’t dance very well she would fail. “ This morning I will choose who will play each part.” said Mrs Pringle.

“Next,” said Mrs Pringle, “ I want you to dance like fire, listen to the music and dance. The dancers leapt around the hall dancing like fire. “Very good” applauded Mrs Pringle, she chose the three boys but not Lola. “STOP dancing, now you have to dance like woodland creatures.” said Mrs Pringle. The dancers rushed around the hall. Mrs Pringle chose the rest of the dancers to be woodland creatures, but not Lola. Lola was she left out. Click me
Lola began to cry she was the only dancer without a part. “Now” said Mrs Pringle, I would normally choose an older dancer for the star role, but this year the swan will fly across the stage on dancers ropes. For this we need the lightest dancer in the school.” Everyone looked at Lola. “I know this is your very first lesson Lola but I wander do you want to be our silver swan.” LOLA WAS THRILLED. “ Yes, yes,yes” LOLA SCREAMED AT THE TOP OF HER VOICE.
