Winnie, Vanessa and Zoe are best friends.  Vanessa lives upstairs and Zoe lives close by.  They do everything together.  On Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, they went to the afterschool program at the YMCA.  Tuesdays were library days and Thursdays were reserved for Girl Scouts.  Now, something is threatening to break up the threesome.  That something is ballet.  Vanessa and Zoe so want to take ballet classes on Tuesdays.  Winnie is dead set against it.  She took movement class in first grade and hated every minute.  She certainly doesn't want to spend every Tuesday at ballet.  The others girls really want to but they want Winnie to join them.  Can something like Tuesday afternoon ballet classes come between good friends?
