Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

An 11-year veteran dancer for the New York City Ballet, Froman here documents life in the corps de ballet in a photo-album and diarylike format. Presenting a day in the life of the dancers, he takes readers through the stages of warming up, class, physical therapy, rehearsals, preparation, and, of course, the show. Froman confides, "I can hear the sound of cracking hips and knees. It's just the beginning of another day of rehearsals with the show looming at eight o'clock." He communicates the intimate perspective of an experienced dancer ("I just wasn't expecting to feel so old this quickly") while offering a private backstage view. His vivid descriptions and photos submerge readers into the atmosphere. An engaging point of view and an attractive layout make this an entertaining read. YAs may also find it a good introduction to the dance world as a possible career. Recommended for all libraries.
—Barbara Kundanis
