About this title


The author recalls her childhood in Leningrad, her education, and her career as a ballerina

From Library Journal:

Danilova, ballerina and teacher with a long, distinguished career, never achieved the status of Pavlova or Fonteyn; her lifededicated to her artis all the more inspiring because of that. Orphaned at an early age, Danilova received her training at the Maryinsky School in St. Petersburg. Her commitment to dance led her to Europe and the United Statesan itinerant and at times insecure lifestyle. She was a popular favorite when she performed with the Ballets Russes and the Ballets Russes de Monte Carlo. Danilova has a critical eye and excellent memory; her comments on her personal and working relationships with Diaghilev, Balanchine, Massine, et al. are analytical, informative, and rarely gossipy. In the final chapter she discusses the teaching methods she uses at the School of American Ballet. An enjoyable remembrance. Joan Stahl, Enoch Pratt Free Lib., Baltimore
