I remember watching this movie in a sort of “musical appreciation” class back in elementary school in the late 90s. It was in English, and in color. From what I remember of the movie, a little girl visits her grandmother who used to be a dancer. She finds an old costume (probably a dress with fairy wings) and finds herself transported back in time to when her grandmother was a young woman trying to be a dancer in some theater production.
In the past, the girl is like a “ghost” where no one can see her except for the writer/director/some managerial person of the production. There was some kind of romantic tension developing between the girl’s grandmother and the director, but there is also a singer who acts really snobby and is probably going to make the romance a love triangle.
At one point the girl’s grandmother dances outside with only a couple people in the audience (including the director and the singer). The little girl also dances on the side and the director sees her and says really supportivly, “You are a dancer!” But the snobby singer looks really confused, thinking he is talking about the grandmother and thinks that he is just stating the obvious.
This was about 20 years ago, and obviously my memory may be inaccurate. I never saw the ending of this movie, so I don’t know what happens next. Thanks for reading!
