Format: Paperback
A must read for any dancer or dance aficionado who wants to learn and grow in authentic dance knowledge and get all the secrets from a dancer's past! This book is filled with intimate details of excellent dance training, competitive auditions, performances in New York City of the '40s, and the author's struggle to pay her own way. Staying afloat when parents won't pay for any part of their dancing daughter's life expresses the ultimate passion a dancer must have to survive and thrive. Wonderfully rich and packed with humor and pizzazz!

I live in the same city as the author. I met her a few times and she always struck me as harsh and critical. However, once I read this book I gained a new appreciation and respect for her...and a better understanding of why she might have come off as harsh and critical. If you are interested in cultural history or dance..this book will delight you.

Format: Paperback
I love this behind-the-scenes view into the world of the dancer greats - a wonderful reminder that such talent ties back to the innate love for, and need to, dance. I was inspired by Sharry's dedication to pursuing her love of dance, and through her words felt as it I was taking the journey alongside her.
