The Sand Dancers' story

All the Sand Dancers are very excited - the Sandringham Dance School is going to reopen!

Cassie Marramgrass is desperate to win a place. Not only does she love dancing, but she is sure that the school holds the answers to her mother's disappearance.

Cassie's mother, the prima donna dancer, vanished on the night of the Great Sandstorm seven years ago. No one seems to know what happened to her and the dance school has been closed ever since - until now!
