Description

A powerful story about being black in the ballet world. Ballet is the most important thing in Stephanie's life. Her good-girl reputation, her humiliation about her father's job--everything disappears for those brief, amazing moments when she is in flight. But the reailty of dance is tough, and Stephanie's parents fear that she doesn't realize the most painful obstacle of all: how few opportunities there are for black ballerinas. Then the remarkable Miss Winnie and her talented nephew, Vance, show up in ballet class one day. And as Miss Winnie focuses her attention on Vance and Stephanie's success, Stephanie begins to discover a very different kind of love . . . and a different understanding of what's important.
