An elegant, expressive dancer, Chan Hon Goh is one of the ballet
world's great stars. She is a brilliant technician possessing a
delicate beauty and radiant stage presence. Born in Beijing to
dancer parents, she tells the story of their flight to Canada from
an oppressive regime that thwarted her father's career, her
rigorous training, and her battle to achieve acceptance as the only
ballerina in the history of the National Ballet.
This fascinating look at the life of a dancer will appeal not only
to the legions of Chan Hon Goh's admirers and to students of
ballet, but also to young readers who understand what it is to
pursue a dream.
