The world is big.

Anna is small.

The snow is everywhere and all around.

But one night . . .

One night, her mother takes her to the ballet, and everything is changed-Anna finds a beauty inside herself that she cannot contain. So begins the journey of a girl who will one day grow up to be the most famous prima ballerina of all time, and who will inspire legions of dancers after her: the brave, the generous, the transcendently gifted Anna Pavlova.
