Dance she did, and dance she must - between her two loves

In this classic drama, Vicky Page is an aspiring ballerina torn between her dedication to dance and her desire to love.

Eventually Vicky, under great emotional stress, must choose to pursue either her art or her romance, a decision that carries serious consequences.
