Dance of Shadows Flash Contest Finalists

Vanessa’s grandmother, mother, and sister were all talented ballerinas, so it’s natural that she would follow in their footsteps and attend the prestigious New York Ballet Academy. But Vanessa isn’t just there to perfect her skills. Her sister mysteriously disappeared from the academy three years ago and Vanessa is determined to find her.

Will Vanessa be able to unwrap the mystery behind her sister’s disappearance or will she suffer the same fate?
