Summary
"This is the story of the Croatian-born ballerina Mia Slavenska, one of the most celebrated dancers of her time. It is also a story about historical memory, national identity, and the power of art. A glittering star of the famed Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo, in her era, everyone who loved dance knew her name. Yet, in spite of a career that lasted decades, when Slavenska died in 2002, she believed that she had been completely forgotten, not only in America, but also in her native Croatia. As her daughter, Maria, retraces Slavenska's life journey, she unearths the fascinating story of a maverick ballerina and a lost time of dance. And Maria discovers something more: Mia Slavenska hasn't been forgotten after all"--Container
