Dancing in the Light: The Janet Collins Story

Parsons, Karyn
Janet loved to dance, and she especially loved BALLET! When the world renowned Ballet Russe came to town holding auditions in 1934, Janet could hardly wait for her moment to shine. But, things weren't always fair for black girls in America... DANCING IN THE LIGHT tells the inspiring story of the first African American prima ballerina, Janet Collins. Narrated by actor and comedian Chris Rock, this story teaches us that we can be anything we set our minds to, even after being told that we are not the current model for success.
