About this title

Synopsis:

VERY-GOOD HARDBACK IN WORN DUSTJACKET WITH ONE MENDED TEAR ON BACK.

From Library Journal:

Markova, whose career has spanned six decades, is the British grande dame of ballet. Inspired by a childhood meeting with Pavlova, Markova became one of the "baby ballerinas" of Diaghilev's Ballet Russe while still in her teens. These gentle reminiscences form a panoramic history of 20th-century ballet, as Markova has danced or worked with all of the greats. Most entertaining are her incredible tales of months of one-night stands across America, where she danced under all sorts of conditions for $30 a week. It is apparent that dance is her life, as there is no mention of any personal life whatsoever in this book. Studded with photographs, which cannot do justice to her lightness and grace, this is a tribute to a great lady. Marcia L. Perry, M.L.S., Berkshire Athenaeum, Pittsfield, Mass.
