I like it because it is cool how she has been a Dancer all her life.:)

To dance shows the struggles of a ballerina, but also shows that the reason why we dance is because it fills a space in people. I think that means a lot to ballet dancers everywhere. Not just ballet dancers, but all kinds of dancers who sacrificed their childhood to become a professional. (I`ve probably read To Dance a thousand times already.) (heh heh)

When i first read it, i was 7 or 8 ( 2008 or 7) . I loved it! Then i forgot the title and i was searching for this book. So about 5 or six years ( 2013) later i have found it!

I read this book for the first time when I was 5 or 6 years old. Now, when I read it again about a decade later, I still remember my dreams of being a prima ballerina. This is a wonderful book, and I am glad to have read this.
