Summary
Josephine loves to dance. The emus show her how to point her toes. The eagles teach her how to soar to the music of the wind. Then the ballet comes to the sleepy town of Shaggy Gully and Josephine learns that there's another way to dance. This is how Josephine wants to dance, but will her dream ever come true?
