When Julie, Lucy, and Alia sign up for rock the new style brings a lot of new lessons, not the least of which is that cute boys don't necessarily make good dance partners. And the girls can’t forget their ballet skills, not when Miss Anne has the whole troupe performing The Nutcracker . . . in Russia! Carla, jealous as always, is intent on ruining the show; the girls may need some help from an unexpected place to pull it off this time!
