'My name is Katie Morag McColl and I live on the island of Struay.

0:00:310:00:35

'I suppose it's quite wee, but it's ginormous to me

0:00:360:00:39

'and everyone looks out for me

0:00:390:00:41

'when I'm out and about having my adventures.'

0:00:410:00:44

0:00:440:00:46

Ten, nine, eight,

0:00:460:00:48

seven, six, five,

0:00:480:00:51

four, three, two, one. Ready or not...

0:00:510:00:54

'It was just about the summer holidays

0:00:540:00:57

'and my big boy cousins were already in Struay for their summer visit.'

0:00:570:01:01

'I love it when they come.

0:01:100:01:11

'Every day we're out playing hide and seek

0:01:110:01:14

'or skimming stones or blowing dandelion fairies high into the sky.

0:01:140:01:18

'And at the end of the day we go home ravenous for our tea.'

0:01:200:01:23

Where do dandelions go when you blow them up to the air?

0:01:250:01:28

Well, they land all over the place.

0:01:280:01:31

They're wee seeds with wings.

0:01:310:01:33

I like dandelions. They float in the wind.

0:01:330:01:36

Well, take a look at this then.

0:01:360:01:39

Miss Campbell has organised dancing classes in the village hall.

0:01:390:01:43

Dancing classes?

0:01:430:01:45

'I wasn't sure if I liked the sound of that at all.

0:01:450:01:48

'Summer holidays were for playing games and building sandcastles,

0:01:480:01:51

'not for going to classes.'

0:01:510:01:53

-Tea's ready.

-Ah.

0:01:530:01:56

Oh, I used to love dancing when I was a girl.

0:01:560:01:59

I'll bet you were great.

0:01:590:02:01

I had my moments.

0:02:010:02:02

-Why don't you show us?

-Oh, oh, no! I couldn't.

-Oh...

0:02:020:02:06

Oh, all right, then.

0:02:060:02:07

(Why's her arms like that?)

0:02:100:02:12

(She's supposed to look like a stag's antlers.)

0:02:120:02:15

(She looks like she's hanging the washing.)

0:02:150:02:18

-Music, maestro.

-Oh, right.

0:02:180:02:20

HE HUMS A JIG

0:02:210:02:24

Come on, join in!

0:02:310:02:33

Now...fingers to thumbs...

0:02:330:02:36

..wrists down

0:02:370:02:40

and...

0:02:400:02:42

peg the clothes higher,

0:02:420:02:44

higher,

0:02:440:02:45

and higher!

0:02:450:02:49

Higher!

0:02:490:02:50

Looks like your washing's fallen on the ground.

0:02:510:02:54

Oh, well done.

0:02:550:02:57

You were fabulous.

0:02:570:02:59

Maybe I'd like to do dancing after all.

0:02:590:03:01

What a wonderful idea!

0:03:010:03:03

And I'll make you a ballet costume.

0:03:030:03:05

-A ballet costume?

-Trust me, you'll love it.

0:03:050:03:09

BELL RINGS

0:03:120:03:14

No way that's real.

0:03:140:03:16

-Course it is.

-Hold this.

0:03:160:03:19

Oh!

0:03:240:03:26

-So?

-There's no way that's real.

0:03:260:03:28

What have you got there?

0:03:390:03:41

Netting. 40 yards of it.

0:03:410:03:44

The colour's way too bright.

0:03:440:03:45

That will frighten the fish away.

0:03:450:03:48

I'm not making a fishing net, I'm making a tutu.

0:03:480:03:52

-A what-what?

-A tutu.

0:03:520:03:55

It's a ballet skirt.

0:03:550:03:56

It floats on the air like a spider's web.

0:03:560:04:00

Isobel, pass me the other parcel, please.

0:04:000:04:04

I didn't know you could sew.

0:04:040:04:06

Well, I don't really. But how hard can it be?

0:04:060:04:09

How many skirts are you going to make?

0:04:130:04:16

Just the one. It's for Katie Morag.

0:04:160:04:19

Do you think that's her style?

0:04:190:04:22

Are you giving me fashion advice?

0:04:240:04:26

I suppose I'd better just look at my seeds.

0:04:270:04:31

I think that's probably for the best.

0:04:310:04:33

And you're sure you know how to work this?

0:04:400:04:42

Oh, yes.

0:04:420:04:44

Oh, dear.

0:04:520:04:54

I've done it wrong.

0:04:540:04:56

Neilly Beag, could you hold this for me?

0:04:560:04:59

Me?

0:04:590:05:00

Well, there's no-one else here, is there? Um...

0:05:000:05:03

Hold it up.

0:05:030:05:04

Ah...

0:05:130:05:14

I've got it right this time.

0:05:140:05:16

That's lucky, because I've run out of hands.

0:05:160:05:20

That's more material for you, Mum.

0:05:230:05:26

More?!

0:05:260:05:28

BALLET MUSIC PLAYS

0:05:280:05:30

Have I got a surprise for you!

0:05:340:05:38

What is it?

0:05:380:05:39

Well? What do you think?

0:05:450:05:48

-Hmm...

-I know!

0:05:480:05:50

Some of the needlework isn't absolutely perfect,

0:05:500:05:53

but isn't it gorgeous?

0:05:530:05:55

Maybe just needs a few more frills.

0:05:560:06:00

I looked like a ginormous pink fairy

0:06:030:06:05

as if someone had covered me in glue

0:06:050:06:07

and dropped me in a bathtub of cherry blossom.

0:06:070:06:10

It can't have been that bad, surely!

0:06:100:06:12

Why does everything just have to be so pink?

0:06:120:06:15

Granma Mainland never had a little girl of her own.

0:06:150:06:18

Now she's got you, well,

0:06:180:06:20

maybe she's gone a little bit over the top.

0:06:200:06:22

A little bit!

0:06:220:06:24

How about you grin and bear it just this once?

0:06:240:06:28

Let her get all that pinkness out of her system.

0:06:280:06:31

I suppose so.

0:06:310:06:32

Then when you finish with the dress,

0:06:320:06:34

we'll bring it home and plant it.

0:06:340:06:35

Your mum loves cherry blossoms.

0:06:350:06:37

'It just so happened that the night before the first dancing class

0:06:390:06:43

'there had been a great big storm,

0:06:430:06:45

'so I had to stop and check

0:06:450:06:46

'if anything exciting had got washed ashore.'

0:06:460:06:49

'Of course, exploring the beach isn't always the quickest of jobs.'

0:07:200:07:24

Bye, Mrs Campbell.

0:07:280:07:30

Katie Morag!

0:07:320:07:34

You've missed the ballet class. Where have you been?

0:07:340:07:37

Sorry, Mrs Campbell.

0:07:370:07:38

I was down beach co... I was down...

0:07:380:07:41

FERRY HORN

0:07:440:07:45

Never mind.

0:07:520:07:53

It will brush up as good as new.

0:07:530:07:56

I heard a mermaid was spotted on the beach.

0:07:560:07:59

They say someone was dancing with her.

0:08:000:08:04

'The next Saturday, I set off in plenty of time for the class,

0:08:120:08:16

'but some naughty sheep had got out of the field,

0:08:160:08:19

'so of course I had to put them back.'

0:08:190:08:21

SHEEP BAA

0:08:210:08:23

'And I was late for the class again.

0:08:290:08:32

'But when I did arrive,

0:08:320:08:34

'it wasn't at all what I was expecting to see.'

0:08:340:08:37

Oh, Katie Morag. You've missed the ballet class again.

0:08:410:08:45

Sorry, Miss Campbell.

0:08:450:08:47

-What are they doing?

-This is tap.

0:08:490:08:51

-It looks like fun. Can I play?

-Dressed like that?

0:08:510:08:54

Of course you can.

0:08:540:08:56

Just watch what we're doing and then try and join in.

0:08:560:08:59

Ready?

0:08:590:09:01

Toe, ball, heel, tap.

0:09:010:09:02

Toe, ball, heel, stamp!

0:09:020:09:05

Toe, ball, heel, tap.

0:09:050:09:07

Toe, ball, heel, stamp!

0:09:070:09:09

'I liked the look of this tap business

0:09:090:09:11

'a lot more than I liked the look of ballet,

0:09:110:09:14

'but I didn't want to upset Granma Mainland.'

0:09:140:09:17

You try, Katie Morag.

0:09:170:09:19

Toe, ball, heel, stamp.

0:09:190:09:21

Toe, ball, heel...tap.

0:09:210:09:23

Toe, ball, heel... BOYS LAUGH

0:09:230:09:25

'And I just didn't have the right shoes.

0:09:250:09:28

'I decided that this was one of those times

0:09:290:09:32

'when I just needed a little chat with Grannie Island.'

0:09:320:09:35

-Grannie Island!

-Ooh-ya!

0:09:350:09:37

-I've got a problem.

-So have I!

0:09:380:09:41

It's the dancing class.

0:09:410:09:42

Ach, well, I was never much of the ballet dancer myself.

0:09:420:09:46

Neither am I. That's the problem.

0:09:460:09:48

Ah, come on inside.

0:09:480:09:50

There's not many problems can hold out against a nice cup of tea

0:09:500:09:53

and a porridgie, eh?

0:09:530:09:56

'Well, I told Grannie Island all about walking to the hall

0:09:560:10:00

'and the storm

0:10:000:10:01

'and the beach

0:10:010:10:03

'and the sheep...' Baaaa baaaaa.

0:10:030:10:05

'and the torn dress

0:10:050:10:07

'and then missing the ballet

0:10:070:10:09

'and about the tap dancing...' Toe, ball, heel...

0:10:090:10:12

'..and how I couldn't make the proper sound.'

0:10:120:10:14

See what I mean?

0:10:140:10:16

I do.

0:10:160:10:17

It looks more like flap dancing than tap dancing.

0:10:170:10:21

What do you reckon?

0:10:210:10:23

Hold on.

0:10:230:10:24

Give the porridgie time to work.

0:10:240:10:27

Mm-hm.

0:10:270:10:28

I think I've got it.

0:10:310:10:33

Right, what have we got here?

0:10:330:10:35

That lock would definitely come in handy for something.

0:10:360:10:40

Ah-ha!

0:10:400:10:42

My rubber duck. I wondered where it had got to.

0:10:420:10:46

Ah, yes. Here they are.

0:10:480:10:50

-What are they?

-Segs.

0:10:500:10:52

You put them in the sole of your boot

0:10:520:10:54

to stop them wearing out.

0:10:540:10:56

SHEEP BLEAT

0:10:570:10:59

Vibrant velour.

0:11:030:11:05

Have you finished yet?

0:11:260:11:28

Don't rush me, Katie Morag.

0:11:280:11:30

Rome wasn't built in a day.

0:11:300:11:32

What does that mean?

0:11:320:11:33

It means patience is a virtue.

0:11:330:11:36

Right.

0:11:400:11:42

Now I'm finished.

0:11:420:11:43

BOOTS TAP

0:11:450:11:47

I'm so proud. She's been working awfully hard.

0:11:490:11:52

So I hear.

0:11:530:11:54

Welcome, all of you, to the final class

0:11:570:11:59

of this year's summer dance project.

0:11:590:12:02

We are going to start off with a wee bit of a surprise.

0:12:020:12:05

Agnes.

0:12:050:12:06

She's wearing wellies to dance in!

0:12:410:12:43

She sure is.

0:12:430:12:45

Very good she is, too.

0:12:450:12:47

0:13:180:13:20

'I will always remember my dance class that summer

0:13:210:13:24

'cos I learned three really important things.

0:13:240:13:28

'I learned that no matter how hard

0:13:280:13:30

'I tried to be what other people wanted me to be,

0:13:300:13:34

'I was better off just being myself.

0:13:340:13:37

'I learned that patience is a virtue.

0:13:370:13:39

'And most important of all,

0:13:390:13:42

'I learned that there's not much that's impossible,

0:13:420:13:45

'so long as you have the right pair of wellies!'

0:13:450:13:48

Granma Mainland is very excited when Katie Morag joins the dancing class but it seems that ballet isn't the favourite mode of dancing of this particular Struay girl.
