About this title

Synopsis:

Illustrated with more than fifty breathtaking color and black-and-white photographs, I Am a Dancer tells the inspiring on- and offstage story of thirteen-year-old Eva Lipman, a student at the prestigious School of American Ballet. Readers will be thrilled to follow in Eva's ballet slippers--from chubby, tutued toddler to her current career as a young ballerina in New York City. With a charming combination of beautiful photos and Eva's own words, I Am a Dancer offers a truly personal glimpse of a highly dedicated ballerina's glamorous--and sometimes not-so-glamorous--life, from the bouquets and blisters to the glare of the spotlight and the long, lonely hours of practice. A very special book for girls and ballet fans of all ages!

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-7-Like the ballerina in Jill Krementz's A Very Young Dancer (Knopf, 1976; o.p.), 13-year-old Eva Lipman is the daughter of a former dancer and a student at the School of American Ballet in New York. While Krementz's book focuses on the dancer's experience in a particular performance, Feldman portrays Eva's everyday life, including her home, her family, and her friends. Readers will learn some behind-the-scenes details about how costumes are made and how dancers rehearse, but they will also see an ordinary teenager who wears braces and likes to shop. The full-color and black-and-white photographs of Eva with her parents and classmates capture the flavor of New York City, showing the girl shopping with her father and relaxing in her crowded studio apartment with her mother. Some of the photos, including several of Eva posing in Central Park wearing tutus that match the flowers, are almost too precious, contributing to the fairy-tale image of a ballerina, but Eva's first-person narrative also discusses the hard work and discipline involved in dancing. An attractive, up-to-date photo-essay that will appeal to budding dancers who want a glimpse of a real ballerina's life.
