Chapter One – The New Girl
“It’s Friday!” screamed Harry. Harry was a 15 year old boy, who seemed to find everything in life extremely boring, except dancing. It was Friday, the day he went dancing. Harry had a standard family with a Mum, a Dad and a little brother called Billie-Jean. He lived in a standard house on a standard street in Northern London and lived an almost-standard life. Both of his parents were police officers. Every night they came home telling him and his sister about their amazing adventures they had that day.. After school – before his parents had a chance to speak to him – Harry went to Bellas dancing club and school. A street behind, Eve the Jazz dancer was doing the exact same – going to dance. Eve and Harry were best friends. During dance, a new dancer approached them, “Hi! My name is Tiana,” she said. She was wearing a bright pink hat and a bright pink dancing top.
After many weeks of watching her dance with her hat, Jason the Ballet dancer said to his friends:
“She always wears that bright pink hat! Someone ask why!”
Chapter Two – A Mystery
Many weeks passed by, and Tiana never removed her bright pink hat. Each of them had different ideas about why she had her hat on. Finally, Rita the Modern dancer came and she plucked up the courage to ask Tiana about why she wore her hat. But Tiana started sobbing. “I had treatment for my cancer, my hair isn’t growing yet and at my old school I got bullied by other children for my hair. My parents said if I start a new dance class it might get me more focused.” she cried. “ But I’m too scared to take it off because you might make fun of me!” Rita gave her a warm hug and they both walked to the cafe to have food. Meanwhile, it was lunch break and Ella the salsa dancer was just eating food thinking about love and boys. Ahhh, her crush. Charlie the ballroom dancer. Ella was really clumsy when she looked at the boy she had a crush on, even if she was at the other side of the studio. She didn’t realise she was walking straight into the wall. 2 minutes later she was on the floor in front of a dark wall, with a graze on her knee that was vaguely bleeding. Everybody started laughing at her, but she also saw Charlie walking towards her and realised he was helping her up. He looked in her eyes and she looked into his; Ella said thank you and they both walked into different directions. Every girl was astonished. How did Ella get her hands on the most handsome boy?
Chapter Three – Dance for Life
After break time, it was the best soloist competition. The dancers competing were Ella, Rita, Jason Kalum, Kayla, Ellena, Sarina, Rito ,Tiana, Eve, Harry ,Ariana, Charlie ,Anna, Lyra, Tom and more but anyway, these are our main dancers in this story. It was hard and by hard I mean really hard but this was the right pick for the winners. Just the right pick . The studio head Mary announced the winners “And the winners are Rita ella jason and tiana!”
Dance For life was the biggest competition in the world! People all over the world take part in this amazing competition. Each year, around 68 dance studios compete to win, but they had a very hard decision to decide who would get the solo part. Now was the time to decide who would get the solo part for bella’s dance studio to compete with the other teams. They had a hard job to decide who would be the best to battle in the dance show.
Chapter Four – The Decider
The suspense in everyone was heating up as each and every person thought they were going to get the part, but finally after hours of waiting the head girl came in the the big reveal was about to happen. Every person waited and stood and stared in awe as they waited for the final answer. Mary the studio head finally came out with it,
“We have finally decided to give the solo part to Rita!,”
“Well done Rita!”
All of a sudden they heard a crying noise as the studio door slammed shut. Everyone looked around to figure out who had left crying they finally figured it out… Tiana. Rita was Tiana’s best friend. Why isn’t she happy for her? They finally realised that they had practised a duet and performed a duo but only decided on Rita. When they realised this, about 20 people ran out to comfort her. Tiana didn’t know that it wasn’t a solo and Rita wanted Tiana to be happy so she didn’t tell her.
Chapter Five – Dance For Life
It was time to dance. Rita was going to face 68 big great teams to qualify to the nationals they were doing the regionals dance for life competition to enter the nationals to enter the internationals. Suddenly Rita looked back and she saw the diamonds . The diamonds were the hardest to compete with. They laughed at her and Layla the soloist for her team said “Bye losers!” It was time. Layla went on stage her pretty illuminous dress was waving around her waist. The music came on only thirty four teams could compete after this Layla performed handsprings flips and lots of elegency. Twists and turns bends and more. The song finished. It was Rita’s turn but no one was there backstage to encourage Rita. “They must not like me anymore,” thought Rita. The music came on. Rita went to life as she done her routine backflips splits high kicks and more were included. She did her last spin and the music came out. And the second place winner is Rita said the judge, There was silence no one even peeped, nobody cheered. Now it was show time.
Chapter Six – Suspicious Robbery
In Mary’s hotel room all the funds money and savings were in a case and the key to the box full of them was just on the bedside table. Mary was sleeping calmly. Suddenly a grenade full of smoke and fire burst. Mary flew off the bed and ran outside of the hotel room, not knowing what had happened. The fire brigade came in as they fought through the fire they saw that the money was gone . Mary was shocked… all that was in her head was,”OH NO NO NO!!!”. Soon after the brave fire brigade stormed out and told Mary it’s all good. But was it… Mary carefully tiptoed in and immediately came around to investigate the robbery and soon realized that every single penny had been stolen. Now Mary was extremely suspicious, she picked up the box and saw a little note it said, ”YOU CAN’T CATCH ME! HAHAHA!”. Mary was steaming furious. She looked out the window and saw two people , unidentifiable as they had their faces covered. They had a ton loads of money and they drove away like a maniac. Without thinking she dialed 999. Mary also noticed the big crack in the window which someone had definitely jumped out of, but who stole her precious money?
Chapter Seven – Food Fight
Meanwhile Eve and Harry were talking Eve was on Rita’s side while Harry was on Tiana’s side they were eating lunch. Harry said its Rita’s fault she lied to Tiana about what happened. “It’s not!” replied Eve. Eve was about to scream and smack Harry but instead she poured her open juice bottle right on Harry’s head. Harry squirted tomato sauce all over Eve. Suddenly Jason shouted at Harry. “What was that for?!” he said. He threw his pasta all over harry. Eve smirked. In the blink of an eye Rito (aka Rita’s little brother) smacked Jason with a LOT of pie. Suddenly a big food fight happened AND the lounge was covered in food. All dancers had their opinion and to make everyone listen they used food and by food I mean a lot of food. Suddenly Kallum threw his glass water bottle, which was as thick as an tank, on to the new tv. The tv fell down with a thud. Pictures fell, tables were destroyed. Then Sarina – the cheeky one – had a cunning idea she was on eves team rita ella sarina ellena and charlie pushed the big grand piano. The grand piano cost 60,000 pounds they pushed the piano so hard it pushed Harry’s team backwards and to the other side of the room but the piano was still moving. The piano flew and crashed through the double doors the piano which was covered in food flew down the stairs and it crashed threw the building and froze on the concrete. The piano stood still everybody stood still the cuts through the piano were massive. In a flash the cuts through the piano split up into little fragments . What would Maisie do thought the dancers .Maisie was the head of the hotel . But Maisie was on the floor unconscious .the piano must of hit her said ariana who was covered in chicken nuggets. Mary ran towards the big heap of mess. “WHAT HAVE YOU ALL DONE TELL ME NOW!” Everybody was as silent as the stars,”TELL ME OR THERE WILL BE LOTS, AND LOTS AND LOTS OF TROUBLE, IF YOU DON’T TELL ME I EXPECT YOU TO SOLVE THIS PROBLEM IN FIVE DAYS! AND THAT’S THE END OF THE COMPETITION. YOU’RE IN REAL TROUBLE. BUT FIRST YOU’RE CLEARING THIS MESS.” She stomped out everybody froze then the sofa crashed with a thud. Everybody looked at each other they were not guilty of themselves, the two teams were merciless.
It was a new day. AS everybody cleared out the room ELena
talked to her parents. Elena’s parents abused her, so she didn’t like them and they didn’t like her too . Ellena wanted better parents not like these. If somebody came to her house, her parents would act normal, but when they were gone, her parents hit her. She told everyone but they didn’t believe her. Elena had a plan. She was going to leave her house after the competition.
