"From the world of Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls comes the historical novel based on the life of Alicia Alonso, a world-renowned prima ballerina from Cuba. Alicia was born to dance. From the moment she slips on pointe shoes for the first time, she's determined to become a professional ballerina. A few years later, Alicia moves from Cuba to the United States to follow her dreams. Then, Alicia begins to lose her sight. How can a ballerina dance if she can't see where she's going? Stuck in bed and only able to practice with her fingertips, Alicia doesn't give up. She finds a way to get back on stage, dancing into the hearts of audiences as one of the world's most famous prima ballerinas. Alicia Alonso Takes the Stage is the story of a world-renowned prima ballerina who impressed people all over the world with her beautiful dancing while living with visual impairments. This is a story about perseverance in the face of adversity, and how the arts can afford women the opportunity to achieve a global impact."--provided by publisher.
