Raising the Barre
Big Dreams, False Starts, & My Midlife Quest to Dance the NutcrackerBook - 2015
"When Lauren Kessler was twelve, her ballet instructor crushed not just her dreams of being a ballerina but also her youthful self-assurance. Now, many decades and three children later, Kessler embarks on a journey to join a professional company to perform in The Nutcracker. [This] is more than just one woman's story; it is a story about shaking things up, taking risks and ignoring good sense, and forgetting how old you are and how you're 'supposed' to act. It's about testing limits and raising the bar(re) on your own life"--Amazon.com.
