Barbie in this movie is Kristyn Farraday a young ballet dancer. Kristyn tries very hard and is good at what she does but the lead roles always go to Tara, one of the other dancers. Kristyn is upset one day when Madame Natasha tells her off for not following the dance steps properly. Feeling sad and needing new ballet shoes, Kristyn visits the wardrobe mistress, who gives her a pair of bright pink ballet shoes. When Kristyn puts on the new shoes they transport her and her friend Hailey, to a fantasy land of classical ballet sets.
Kristyn finds herself dancing the parts of both Giselle and Odette from Swan Lake and finds that both Albrecht and Prince Siegfried, the boys who dance the lead roles, want to marry her. She’s in trouble with the wicked Snow Queen though and the evil Rothbart who both chase after her. When Kristyn and Hailey finally return to reality, Kristyn has learnt that you must follow your own heart, especially when dancing.
