  • Beautiful ballerina, you are the danceYou dance madness and sadness, fairies, love, betrayal.You plant enchantment on the planet with every step A beautiful poem full of stunning photos of dancers from the Dance Theater of Harlem Even though they are photographs, it looks and feels like you are watching a full on dance performance.

  • Nelson s poem hilights the beauty, strength and resilience of African American ballet dancers, while Kuklin s photographs feature four ballerinas of varying age An important book for helping students of all races and cultures understand that the arts are not just by and for white people.
