Prima Ballerina Darcey Bussell takes you on a captivating journey to a faraway land of ballet and magic, the wonderful world of Enchantia! The sixth of sparkly new series for all young girls who dream of being a ballerina, or simply love to dance! Delphie's magic red shoes are suddenly feeling too tight, and she really doesn't want to give them up! But before she has time to worry, her friends in Enchantia need her help. King Rat is trying to spoil the Queen's birthday show; can Delphie help undo his mischief?
Darcey Bussell joined the Royal Ballet School when she was 13 and, despite starting later than most of the other students, became a Principal of the Royal Ballet at just 19, at the time the youngest ballerina ever to be given this honour. Darcey received both the OBE and CBE awards during her time with the Royal Ballet, and since officially retiring in 2007 she has teamed up with Katherine Jenkins in the phenomenally successful 'Viva la Diva'. In 2012 she joined the judging panel of the BBC's 'Strictly Come Dancing'. She is married with two daughters.
