Dancing in the dark
Ditty is a teenage girl who belongs to an extremely strict Jewish community. Then she finds out about ballet, and is immediately entranced. So much so that when her parents say that she cant learn, she secretly does so behind their backs. Soon dance becomes her life, heart and soul. As she follows her dream she finds herself questioning her beliefs and becoming more and more distant from those she loves. Secrets cannot stay hidden forever, so what will happen when her family finds out hers Personally, my favourite character is Gittel, Ditty's youngest sister. When I picture her she is so buoyant and carefree, elated at the simplest of things. She is so full of hope, so juvenile, its like she can light up a room with her mere presence and animated personality. Gittel is my favourite character because although young of age I see a spark of intelligence in her eyes that betray a wonderful mind at work, masked by a wall of innocence.
