Plot[edit]

Season 1[edit]

Helena 'Lena' Grisky, a Russian princess from 1905, is training to be a ballerina at the Opéra de Paris and is the school's top student. Her boyfriend Henri is unaware that his family are time-travellers, and he discovers a time-piece hidden by his father, which he gives to Lena as a gift, thinking it is just a piece of jewellery. Lena is transported and trapped in the year of 2018, leaving Henri battling to find a way to bring her back and to fight off the Time Collectors, who set out to capture Lena.

Meanwhile in 2018, Lena must continue to attend ballet school at the modern Opéra de Paris in order to keep her identity a secret and remain in Paris until she can return to 1905. However, despite wanting to return to 1905, Lena soon settles into her new time period and makes new friends in some of the school's other students - Jeff, Dash and Ines, who becomes her best friend and the first to discover her secret. However, she also finds a rival in the ruthless Thea, who sees Lena as a threat to her ambition to be the school's best dancer. To make things even more complicated, even though Lena has not forgotten Henri, she ends up falling for Max, who becomes her dance partner. She also finds a love for a new dance genre, hip-hop, when she joins Max's dance group called the BLOK. With all these conflictions, Lena is left with a dilemma: return to 1905 or stay in the future.

Season 2[edit]

When Lena goes back to 1905, it is reported to the time travel bureau that someone has entered the wrong century. It is then revealed that Lena was actually born in 21st-century, but was sent to 20th-century as a child. Lena and Henri become separated in different timezones, and write letters to each other throughout the season. Thea discovers the Time Collectors, and begins a relationship with Frank, using his time travelling device.
