From one of America’s finest, and most celebrated, classical dancers; former principal dancer for more than three decades with the New York City Ballet—the irresistible story of an exhilarating life in dance.

He writes of the New York City Ballet and those at its center: Lincoln Kirstein; Jerome Robbins; George Balanchine (“With Robbins, you were amplified; with Balanchine, you were transformed”), as well as the ballerinas who were Balanchine’s muses—Maria Tallchief, Tanaquil LeClercq, Allegra Kent, Melissa Hayden, and Suzanne Farrell among them—and with whom d’Amboise had the privilege of partnering . . . about the ballets he danced (he had more works choreographed on him by Balanchine than any other dancer) . . . on courting one of the members of the company who became his wife . . . on the mentors, teachers, and choreographers with whom d’Amboise worked long before they became legends: Antony Tudor, Frederick Ashton, Martha Graham, among them . . .

A riveting, magical book, as transformative as dancing itself.
