Where Snowflakes Dance and Swear: Inside the Land of Ballet

Where Snowflakes Dance and Swear zooms in on an intimate view of one full season in the life of Seattle’s Pacific Northwest Ballet. Never before has a book taken readers backstage for such a wide-ranging view of the ballet world from the wildly diverse perspectives of dancers, choreographers, stagers, teachers, conductors, musicians, rehearsal pianists, lighting directors, costumers, stage managers, scenic artists, marketers, fundraisers, students, and even pointe shoe fitters—often in their own remarkably candid words. This book uncovers the real drama in the daily lives of fiercely dedicated union members in slippers and pointe shoes—and the musicians, stagehands, costumers, donors and administrators who support them. Bringing readers the exciting truth of how ballet actually happens. Hardcover, 910 pages.
