New biography of Janet Collins: "Night's Dancer"

Recommended Posts

I just got this today, so haven't had time to read it, obviously, but it looks very interesting. Janet Collins was an important dancer, and one of the very few African Americans to have a real career, dancing at the Metropolitan Opera. Its based on an unpublished memoir by Collins of her early years -- her training, and her rejections by major companies. Historian Yaël Tamar Lewin finished the story.

Here's a link with more info, from Wesleyan University Press's site:
