Very readable. If you like theatre or dance, you'll enjoy this very personable account of a major American ballet dancer's career. As a bonus, you'll be treated to a history of the growth of American ballet from George Balanchine's work in Russia to the sixties. Since D'Amboise was Balanchine's protege, the account is personal. Highly recommended.
