    My last book of 2019 Happy New Year allThis is a little book about the life of a dancer and it seems to be biographical This girl is accepted to ABT in NYC and gets to dance with all the Russian teachers This is your typical story about the world of dance and what is reuired I felt the ending was a little weird There really wasn't much ending at all She goes off to college and then starts dancing again It was sort of weird The story is told in small chaptersI appreciated it but I think there are better stories out there Still I love the world of dance and so it was still a good read

    Book ReviewI loved the illustrations Loved the color Loved the ribbons that ran through it Loved it The writingmmm it was a bit disjointed and clunky but over all it workedA bunch of other ramblingsWhen I was a kid we were poor Not Frank McCourt poor not we might have to eat the dog poor but still poorpoor like no insurance poor and going to McDonalds was a MAJOR TREAT poor wearing socks for gloves in the winter poor and babysiting the siblings at the berry field that my mom managed poorPoor enough to be nostalgic about poverty that kind of poorBeing that kind of poor meant owning your very own somethinganything was a big deal and being 1 girl in house with 3 brothers and a sister to follow much later hi megan meant girl things were even of a big dealAnd I owned my VERY OWN VERY GIRLY book of ballet dancing It was a how to with a pink cover and black and white photos of a girl appearing to be suspended in space doing 1st position 2nd position etcSomehow I had also obtained a leotard which I dubtifully put on and stood at the back of my coach ballet bar and studied the floating girl as I attempted to duplicate her suspended graceThen my house burned down and the book went with itBut this book reminds of that time and that makes me happyprologuemy dad stopped being a journalist and my mom started getting paid for her art work and not only did we get actual gloves and new school clothes ocassionaly we got MOON BOOTSwoo hoo and most importantly while books always remained somewhat sacred they were not uite as hard to come byyay for childhood memories of booksThen my dad stopped being a journalist

    GradeInterest Level 3 6Dancers 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 BalletTo 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 beyondThis dancer's autobiography told in graphic novel format offers readers a uniue way to journey alongside on her uest to become a ballerina Text is accessible to struggling readers who will also be supported by the cues embedded within the illustrations The illustrations are organized in a visually appealing way and do not impede the reader's ability to follow the story line I would use this with students as an example of the graphic novel genre I might have students next create a graphic novel telling the story of a meaningful event from their own lives

    To Dance is the story of Siena Cherson Siegel's journey from her desire to be a ballerina at age six to her debut performance with the New York City Ballet as a young adult Siegel was faced with being unable to compete several times due to being flat footed personal issues or injuries yet prevailed with optimism It's an uplifting story told in whimsical watercolours by Mark SiegelWhile To Dance is light hearted Siegel doesn't spare the brutal honesty of ballet and how extraordinarily difficult it can be to break into its ranks at all much less achieve fame The art of ballet and its behind the scenes has for some reason always interested me than actual ballets have It is definitely a demanding profession asking so much of you physically and mentally that it takes an insane amount of determination to succeed in Thus I have a lot of respect for ballerinas I've heard this graphic novel described as symphonic and I think that fits uite well the art flowing as smoothly as a lifeline

    Decided to pick this book up for my own writing inspirationresearch and it is now one of my favorite graphic novels It tells the real life story of a young Puerto Rican girl who moves to the United States with her family and pursues her dream of becoming a professional ballerina in New York City Told through beautiful vivid illustrations it is a book about hope passion and art Siena is fierce and believes in herself and her dreams She is the perfect role model for any child whether they hope to dance or not I know she inspired me We dance because it fills a space in us My thoughts exactly

    The cover enticed me to pick this graphic novel up and that's probably the only thing I liked about it The story was lacking and the illustrations were simply okMore of my thoughts on this book here

    I always love reading about ballet The passion for dance always reminds me of my childhood My own experience was not as intense as Siena's but the love for all types of dance was there
