This graphic novel is a memoir of a ballerina. The author, Siena, had a dream of being a ballerina. It follows her life before becoming a ballerina with the New York City ballet. She discusses her parents divorce and the difficulty/challenges with following your dreams. This book challenges young dancers and readers to follow their dreams and although times may be difficult continue pushing forward! ( )

Dancers are young when they first dream of dance and Siena was only six when her dreams of dancing kept skipping and leaping, circling and spinning, from airy runs along a beach near her home in Puerto Rico, to dance class in Boston, to her debut performance on stage with the New York City Ballet.

This graphic novel is based on the true story of the life of ballerina Siena. The book has some muted colors but will have pops of pink throughout the story. The book is very inspiring for kids who need some encouragement on following their dreams. It is an excellent book for teaching kids that hard work really does pay off. ( )

The author describes how she first decided she wanted to be a ballerina at the age of six, and how that dream carried her from her home in Puerto Rico to dance class in Boston to performing with the New York City Ballet ( )

Ends super abruptly, and then I was baffled by how little I could find about the author in Google searches. A quick (approximately ten minutes) and enjoyable read, probably especially for the intended younger audience.

To Dance is a delighful ode to the dreams that drive and define us, and how they can enrich our souls even if we ultimately fail to reach them. Bravo!

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0689867476, Hardcover)

Dancers are young when they first dream of dance. Siena was six -- and her dreams kept skipping and leaping, circling and spinning, from airy runs along a beach near her home in Puerto Rico, to dance class in Boston, to her debut performance on stage with the New York City Ballet.

To Dance tells and shows the fullness of her dreams and her rhapsodic life they led to. Part family history, part backstage drama, here is an original, firsthand book about a young dancer's beginnings -- and beyond.
