Ballerina

This meticulously researched book begins with a startling and horrifying incident. Author Deirdre Kelly then proceeds to detail the history of the ballerina with a plethora of names, dates and locales which sometimes read like a text book. However, there are enough anecdotes of the dancers' struggles that one's interest is heightened to the point of wishing for a better outcome. This book is a rude awakening to a seemingly sublime world.

A decent take on the development and life of a ballerina. I would've liked to see more on how things are changing outside of Canada.
