When Madame Rosa is through, she asks all of her little ballerinas to dance like fairies
When everyone else goes off to change, Ella stays behind for just one more fairy dance...and finds herself transported into the story of A Midsummer Night's Dream. There, she meets Puck, the mischievous fairy, and Oberon, King of Fairyland. Oberon asks Puck to help him win back the heart of Titania, his fairy queen.
