Alicia Alonso Dances On

As a young girl in Cuba, Alicia Alonso practiced ballet in tennis shoes. Within a few years, she was in New York City, with a promising ballet career. But her eyesight began to fail. When Alicia needed surgeries to save her vision, many thought that dancing was impossible, but she wouldn’t give up her dream. She found the strength and determination to return to the stage and become a prima ballerina.

This book from the She Made History series tells the true story of a woman who overcame her challenges, mastered her art, and inspired others to dance and dream. Kids will delight in seeing Alonso find ways to compensate for her limited vision, from ensuring dancer partners would be right on their marks to setting up lighting that helped her find spots on the stage. This inspiring story is perfect for anyone who has wondered if an obstacle would end their dreams.
