At the beginning of season 2, Emma has a bright future ahead of her that promises much happiness: her dancers adore her, Enrico has proposed to her and his daughter Miranda has adopted her as a mother. Having returned to Vicenza to look for her daughter Alice, just when she is about to move forward, the past comes back to haunt her: one night, attracted by the notes of a song, Emma comes across an unknown girl dancing with enthusiasm in front of a small crowd. She wants to run after her and find out who she is, but Enrico urges her to move on once and for all. Emma has relaunched the Dance Academy, and she has been invited to make her debut in a major New York theatre with a contemporary choreographic adaptation of Swan Lake, so she will have to complete the corps de ballet by selecting new dancers. But during the auditions, Emma is bewitched by Diana, the girl she saw dancing that night, who shows up at the auditions at the behest of her mother, Petra Novak. Shortly afterwards, Petra confesses to Emma that Diana is none other than her lost child, Alice. The girl's arrival, because of her mysterious past, her tormented soul and her secrets, upsets all the balances between the dancers, and even between Emma and Enrico, who finds himself irresistibly attracted to Petra. Amidst dance, immortal music, passionate love affairs, dark mysteries and breathtaking twists, and against the romantic backdrop of the city of Vicenza, Emma will learn to be mother and teacher to a girl who rejects her and hides many secrets. Until a new twist puts everything back into play...

Famous choreographer, Emma Conti, lives in New York, where she directs a contemporary dance company. Emma left her hometown Vicenza many years ago, after her child was born dead: a tragedy destroyed her relationship with her partner and marked her life. But sixteen years later, she receives a mysterious message stating that her daughter is actually alive, and dancing like her, right in Vicenza.
Emma returns to the academy to find out the truth, where years ago she learned to dance, and now she agrees to direct a choreography for six young dancers, one of whom could be her lost daughter. Emma investigates the girls and their families, and trial after trial, she realizes that everyone has something to hide - a lie, a guilty secret, an unspeakable sin. While she finds the strength to heal her pain, Emma reopens her heart to Enrico, the father of one of her students. Only after learning to love each of the girls as a daughter, with their character, problems and dreams, Emma will discover the most shocking of truths.
