Gelsey Kirkland s dancing 5 stars Gelsey Kirkland s memoir of dancing meh Some here indicate this is reuired reading for any aspiring ballet dancer and I ll grant you that it will give you an eye opening look at the dark side of the dance world But the focus here is on a mess of a woman who would have found destruction no matter her vocation I did find it an interesting insight into the world of Balanchine though so for that there was value Beyond that however I think an aspiring dancer could do better spending their time studying the lives of successful people who happened to dance than to focus on this successful dancer who was a mess of a person

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

Update Lord I d forgotten how difficult it is to read this book Gelsey s pain is palpable What is perhaps even distressing is reading the response here on goodreads Gelsey never intended to promote anorexia drug addiction or promiscuity She doesn t deserve such contempt from readers My own reservations aside it was brave of her to write so candidly about addiction and mental illness and of the very real abuses visited upon her It s clear to me that she earnestly wishes to improve herself and the culture that exploited her I respect her for thatShe s also the greatest ballerina of all time ReviewIt s about the dark side of ballet I can appreciate thatSadly and despite Kirkland s best efforts it s one of those cautionary tales that amounts to thinspiration
