In Doomed to Dance, Ivy and Bean pester their parents into letting them take ballet lessons - but ballet isn't quite what the girls thought it would be! And now they have to get through the entire ballet course, just like they promised. Will they have to take part in the dreaded recital, or can the girls find a way to weasel out of it?
