Review

Can an aging ballerina and dying ballet company enjoy new energy from young blood and romance? Sure they can, as The Pas de Deux: A Classical Ballet Romance demonstrates with a compelling ballet saga that blends the romance of a couple with eleven years' difference between them with a revitalization process that affects everyone around them.
 
Chapter headings infused with ballet terminology set the stage for each event that unfolds, imbibing the story with ballet culture as it uses the structure of a classical ballet grand pas de deux to trace the evolution of a fiery onstage love affair which leads the ballet director, Mr. D., to separate his head ballerina from her romantic partner.

Invigorated by her newfound passion, Peri dances like never before. But how long can she maintain her new ability before everything comes crashing down around her? As young Mark faces his own demons, from a drunken father who thinks his ballet dancing equates to him being a homosexual to a possessive ballet company director, he faces the ultimate heartbreak from the very one he trusts, who has an ulterior motive for letting him go.
 
As dancing challenges, raw emotions, separations and reunifications, and transformations ensue, everything changes. Erin Bomboy's uncanny ability to capture all the subtle nuances of everyone involved in a ballet company production creates a powerful story that captures not only love's trials and errors, but a fading ballet company's road to a comeback.
 
Readers with a special affinity for the world of dance will relish this powerful saga that blends insights on history, love, choreography, and the climatic buildup of the grand pas de deux as it plays out on stage and in hearts against a wider backdrop of social and political change.
