This is a fascinating look inside the New York City Ballet and the daily lives of the people who dance in it. The author describes her training, the heavy demands on junior dancers, and how, with the help of prayer and her Christian faith she successfully battled her demons of self doubt and overweight.. Photographs are included.
This is a book for young and old dancers, and for those of us who tried our hardest, but succeeded in other professions.

Really awesome book!
I am a dancer and I could really relate to many of the things in the book. Especially the part aboout body image. She is right about mirrors. We are surronded by them. Most of the time we look for everything wrong in the mirror, not what is right. I also love how much Jenifer Ringer brings up her faith in the book. I am a Christian and every single dance in every single performance is done for the glory of God. If anyone reading this lives in the Port Saint Lucie area in Florida and needs an awesome dance school to go to I recommend Amazing Grace School of Dance.Was this review helpful?
