I had to stop reading this book It was too painful The author iswas a famous ballerina who was emotionally and arguably physically abused by George Balanchine the founder of her ballet company and American ballet as we know it actually I thought it would be fun to read about her stories of being a ballerina Boy was I wrong I had to stop because it was causing me pain to read about the things she had to do for ballet some of which was also brought on by her own mental issues When she asked Balanchine to help her with her significant physical pain at the age of I believe 17 he pooh poohed it and told her to drink red wine What Before I became a mom I possibly could have read this book The abuse she underwent would have been something I could have compartmentalized But all I could see and feel was an abused girl being treated as a sophisticated woman Even if only a fraction of what she says is true she was a pawn in the world of ballet as Balanchine has created it for us Imagine reading a book that makes you feel ill about something you love and find beautiful that in fact the man who created the version of that thing as you know it was doing shortcuts dumbing things down not doing the proper version of it because he wanted to ram it down our throats and make money Now imagine that he put his staff through physical torture deliberately I don t know if I can ever see ballet again I had to stop It was truly interesting though to read this book after reading 2 other novels about ballerinas I can see exactly where the other authors obtained some of their ideas from for their books both because they probably lived it and because Ms Kirkland lived it I might have been able to keep going except that Ms Kirkland had so much venom for Balanchine who was her boss for the portion of the book I read that the reading was feeling toxic to me Balanchine even played Ms Kirkland against her sister and she herself played along I couldn t help but feeling I had been recruited unknowingly into being Ms Kirkland s therapist and not a good one at that When this book originally was published it was before internet and the cable news era so perhaps it was less jarring of a read when not also accompanied by the daily bad news that we cannot escape from in the internet age If you want to continue to like ballet then don t read this book

I think I might have liked this book IF 1 I knew who Gelsey Kirland was Apparently she was a very famous ballerina and even danced with Baryshnikof yes I totally made up how to spell that But she was pretty famous a few years before I was bornso I missed out 2 my thighs were not flabby and did not touch each other when I stand normally My dream is to have those strong muscular ballet thighs Or if I could have the really thin kind that have a space between them Man my jeans would wear out WAY less often if there was space instead of rubbing when I walked Anyways I was under the impression that this book was about the lurid life filled with anorexia and cocaine Not that I particularly support either of those things but they sure would have made for an interesting book Instead the book briefly mentioned those two interesting things and decided to focus instead on boring stuff like contract disputes and whining by the author There were a couple days that she didn t eat I think that was the anorexia part And about 20 pages from the end she got hooked on coke Even then not so excitingOk so it got me to thinking about how my life could have spiraled out of control and end with me on cocaine But by some smart self defeating actions I saved myself It all began with the 4th grade spelling beeI am a good speller I don t always type the write spelling hahaha but I KNOW what the right spelling is I beat out all the 5th graders in our school spelling bee except one All I had to do was out spell one kid and I was going to the county bee But I knew that meant that I would have to GO somewhere ie not just do it during school while I was already there My mom was always really weird about me participating in things She was always VERY busy I never did figure that out because she only had two kids that she never allowed to do anything or go anywhere or take any lessons or do any sports and she didn t have a job I have no idea what that lady did all day I always had to do the dishes vacuum take out the garbage and fold the laundry including my parent s underwear super upsetting Anyways so I purposely misspelled a word so that I would NOT win and therefore have to explain to my mom that I had won and needed a ride to the next level of competitionAlso I could not help but worry about WHAT IF I HAD TO GO TO THE BATHROOM DURING THE SPELLING BEE That was a terrible worry of mine for many years Not specifically needing to pee during spelling bees but needing to go in a public restroom You are probably thinking I am a germophone No It was because I watched an episode of Magnum PI where TC s child got kidnapped when he went to the bathroom The mother had let the child go by himself and the bad guys smuggled him out the bathroom window Luckily TC was good buddies with Mangum PI so the kid was recovered by the end of the show But my parents did not know ANY private investigators So who was going to find me if I got kidnapped from the bathroomI m pretty sure that episode really affected my mom also because she would not even let me go to the bathroom alone But instead of graciously accompanying me she would get really upset and act like it was a HUGE inconvience Knowing that it was a big deal made me just have to go even It was an exhausting couple of years Anyway the point is that I purposely lost the spelling bee and therefore saved myself from
