Overview

Tutus and leotards, pointe shoes and ribbions, stretching exercises at the barre--these are all familiar images when one is thinking of ballet. But there's much more to this historic dance form than pink tulle. There's hard work with years of study.

Young readers will find themselves pointing their toes, practicing the five positions, and dreaming of being onstage as a sugarplum fairy or a king with a crown.

This man is a very talented writer but he writes books about the hardships of his life as a gangbanger. Y the sudden change?

Contrary to the Editorial Reviewer's opinion I found this book to be exceptionally beautiful and well written. I read it with a 13 year old male dancer who was impressed as well. It is more than a stereotypical depiction of little girls and ballet. As the mother of a ballet dancer I especially related to the "I is for injury..." as this book portrays some of the real depictions of ballet. I would recommend it for young want to be ballet dancers, any dancer and lovers of dance, male and female!
