a very young dancer
by Jill Krementz.
My daughter just began ballet and I've had this book since I was a bunheaded whippersnapper myself. It's frayed and torn around the edges and I hadn't peeked into it for about 20 years, until last week. It was as if I had never closed the cover.
I love the seventies style clothes and hair.
The photos are great. It's the story of a young dancer named Stephanie, who attends George Balanchine's School of American Ballet.
She gets to mingle with some amazing ballerinas.
There was a series of A Very Young Etc...but I had a one track mind as a child...I was only interested in dancing.
Oh, and dogs.
Was there A Very Young Archaeologist?
P.S. This sells for $189.00 on amazon right now, so I'm holding on tightly to my dust jacket covered copy.
