Tiny Dancer

Tiny Dancer

Published by Simon & Schuster, Atheneum
All her life, Siena has dreamed of being a ballerina. Her love of movement and her dedication to
the art earned her a spot at the School of American Ballet, with hopes of becoming a member of George Balanchine’s world famous New York City Ballet company. After training for many years to be a professional dancer, her whole identity has been shaped by ballet—but her once invincible confidence is suddenly shaken by injury, and breached by doubts.
 
When you have spent your entire life working toward something, how do you figure out what comes next? How do you know who you are, without the thing that has always defined you? This is Siena’s moving and beautifully drawn memoir of her teenage years as a dancer struggling to find her next step—and as a young woman finding her true footing in the world
