From the United States to Russia to India, these women have danced and choreographed their way to the top of their field. From modern to ballet to flamenco, they have made the dance world their stage and performed and taught all over the globe.

Anne Dublin is a teacher-librarian in Toronto, Ontario. Her writing has won many honors and awards, including the Sydney Taylor Honor Book Award, and the American Library Association's Amelia Bloomer Project Recommended Feminist Read for Youth designation.

Canadian Children's Book News
"Dublin has chosen an interesting cross-section of dancers for this collection, most of whom are not well known. Young readers with an interest in dance will find this a satisfying read."
Resource Links
"What makes this book so interesting is the author's truly extensive research into the life of each dancer. The diversity of these dancers' lives offers something for any reader."
