Sarah (borninmt_82) | 19 comments I am searching for a book I read years ago. It was a paperback with green on the cover. It was about two sisters who went to a dance school. I believe their mother had died but wanted them to go there. One of the sisters was very talented. But she didn't like what her sister called "Proper Dancing" and wanted to get into Can-Can dancing which horrified her sister as it was not what their mother had wanted. Something like that plot anyway, it's been a long time. I believe I read it in the 1980's.
