The Case of the Desperate Dancer is the tenth episode of the fourth season of The Adventures of Shirley Holmes, that originally aired on 16 April 2000.


When a dancer in a visiting Ukrainian dance troop steals a religious icon, Bo learns an unpleasant Sawchuck family secret.

When at Bo's mother's dance hall, Shirley discovers Larisa, Bo's cousin who's with the dance group, stealing an icon, which actually only has value to Bo's parents. Getting this statue under her control, she and Bo find out that something's hidden in it.

Larisa only knows that she should steal it for somebody and this somebody probably is the spy who brought Bo's parents into jail years ago in the Ukraine - and is now with the group ...
