Reviews

"[Kelley is] fresh and adept when summoning the art's spellbinding yet harrowing earlier centuries"--Publishers Weekly

"...fast-paced and fascinating... a pleasurable read for any balletomane."--Library Journal "Ballerina features the powerful and dramatic stories of some of the industries greatest dancers"--The Dance Journal "Kelly exposes, with rich detail, the underbelly of the world that only those with a true calling to dance en pointe could endure. ...Read this book. You will never look at a ballet production through the same eyes again."-Portland Book Review "Ballerina is a literary dance of narrative and emotion that pirouettes between rage and sorrow, backstage bleakness and transcendent beauty. A terrific book."--Elizabeth Abbott, author of A History of Celibacy
