Category: Edition 2012

Another day at the ballet school. Classes routine goes as usual, when Sophie notices a boy  outdoors, on the street. She finds him mysterious, maybe she likes him, but doesn’t dare to do anything with it.  Surrounded by her frivolously chattering classmates, she realizes, that another girl is faster making decisions…


Un altro giorno alla Scuola di Ballo. In classe solita routine, finché Sophie non si accorge di un ragazzo fuori, sulla strada. Lo trova misterioso, forse le piace, ma non ha coraggio di fare niente. Circondata dalle sue compagne e dalle loro chiacchiere frivole, Sophie capisce che un’altra ragazza è molto più veloce di lei nel prendere decisioni…
