Obsessed by the ambition of becoming a world famous ballerina, Polly Varley joins a traveling circus as a bareback rider. One day, Stanislas Rosing, a distinguished retired dancer, visits the circus, and impressed by Polly's grace, introduces himself to her. Soon after, Polly impetuously presents herself at Rosing's villa, and despite the objections of his housekeeper Marie, persuades Rosing to teach her to dance. After cautioning Polly of the endless training and sacrifice that she must endure, Rosing accepts her as his pupil and changes her name to Lina Varsavina. Two years of grueling work pass, and one day, Sir Roger Chevis, a young English nobleman, visits the villa while out horseback riding. When Lina becomes enchanted with the young man, Rosing warns that romance has no place in a dancer's life. Finally, one day, Rosing decides that the time has come for Lina to perform for Tatiana Olenkova, a celebrated ballerina who has retired in Rome.
