Description
Stephanie lives for ballet. No parties, no goofing off, no junk food -- she spends every single afternoon in class at ballet school, and every weekend she practices on her own. No one seems to understand why she pushes herself so hard -- not her parents, not her classmates. Sometimes even her fellow dancers think she needs to loosen up and live a little.

Then three new people arrive in Stephanie's life: Anna, the pale, elegant young Russian girl who steals the lead in Sleeping Beauty; Vance, the arrogant, unmotivated, but phenomenally talented dancer who will take the role of the Prince; and Vance's Aunt Winnie, a strikingly beautiful older woman who once danced for Arthur Mitchell, founder of the Dance Theatre of Harlem. Thanks to Miss Winnie, Stephanie finds new courage to pursue the dream that many have told her is impossible: a future for herself as a professional dancer. Soon a small part of that dream is reserved for Vance, too, when Miss Winnie choreographs a pas de deux for them to learn together.

Ballet lovers will find themselves spellbound by this psychologically taut, believable story of a young black ballerina and the dancing that feeds her soul.
