Reviews

"The familiar tale of a young dancer's progress takes on a newly poignant aura by being translated into the unexpectedly appropriate medium of the graphic novel."

-- Terry Teachout, author of All in the Dances: A Brief Life of George Balanchine
"I treasure the marriage of these lovable pictures with the humble story of becoming a ballerina. I believe that with this book, the number of ballet lovers will grow."

-- Maya Plisetskaya, prima ballerina, Bolshoi Ballet
"To Dance is a beautiful portrait of the magical world of dance, and an even more beautiful portrait of a young girl growing up. A must-read for all dreamers who discover themselves. Brava, Siena!"

-- Peter Boal, artistic director, Pacific Northwest Ballet, and former principal dancer, New York City Ballet
