Twins on Toes
by Joan Anderson & George Ancona

What is it like to be a young ballerina at one of the most famous ballet schools in the world? For seventeen-year-old twins Amy and Laurel Foster, studying at the prestigious School of American Ballet in New York City means hard work, persistence, and sacrifice. But most of all, it is a dream come true.

Veteran author/photographer team Joan Anderson and George Ancona were permitted to enter the doors of the School of American Ballet and share Amy and Laurel's lives. In this book you will discover just how demanding--and rewarding--a ballet student's life can be. There are rigorous classes, exhilarating performances, disappointments, and achievements.
