Many thanks to a Ballet Alert! reader for this heads up:
Nancy Reynolds review's Jenifer Ringer
's new memoir, Dancing through It, for the Washington Independent Review of Books.
Jenifer Ringer, recently retired from her long-time profession as principal with the New York City Ballet, was lovely and distinctive dancer, with an unusual warmth and graciousness. She had a strong classical ballet technique and an unshowy, unmannered presentational style. And her face was worthy of a beauty pageant. Now, having left the stage, she is faced with a major life transition. On the basis of this memoir, her first book, she just might have a second career as a writer.
