Editorial Reviews

Review

“[P]recise and realistic but also passionate, and it will give readers the sense of a much-needed guiding hand. Moore is qualified to become a mentor to a whole new generation of artists, and they will benefit greatly from her advice.” (Publishers Weekly )

"Sound advice and a complete road map to planning an artistic career." (Library Journal )

“Rachel S. Moore, the president and CEO of the Los Angeles Music Center and former CEO of the American Ballet Theatre, is a great example of a woman who used the skills that we gain as dancers to become a leader.” (Misty Copeland, principal dancer with the American Ballet Theatre and author of Life in Motion: An Unlikely Ballerina )

“Moore's advice is steeped in her professional experience as an arts administrator and enlivened by her experience as a professional ballet dancer. With a genuine passion and desire to help other artists, she outlines her keys to success for a sustainable career. . . . A hopeful and optimistic treatise that will surely be required reading for performing arts students.” (Kirkus Reviews )
