Suzanne Pointe, though she dances beautifully, looks nothing like the other ballerinas and is not invited to join the Town Ballet. Confused and saddened, Suzanne runs away. “I should never dance again,” Suzanne decides. Later that day, tragedy strikes Suzanne’s hometown, and everyone Suzanne knows is prohibited from dancing or painting or even singing again. Suzanne reunites with her grandmother Nana, and together they make plans to escape. When they awake the next morning, however, they find themselves stranded and in danger, their village come apart. What follows is a story of art and of a community bound together in art to survive.
Suzanne Pointe and the Brave Dancers is dedicated to the memory of impresario and founder of Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo, Mr. René Blum, 1878 – 1943, who died at Auschwitz.

They’ll adore you. I adore you, said Nana.

There was a knock at the door.

Our friends are here! said Suzanne.

All of Suzanne's friends were coming over to wish her well, the first of whom were their neighbors, the Goodmans. After the Goodmans, in came Mr. and Mrs. Mickwee, who owned the grocery store.
