An irresistible inside look at one of the world's great dance companies, Winter Season is also a sensitive, intimate, and almost painfully honest account of the emotional and intellectual development of a young woman dedicated to one of the most demanding of all the arts.
Annotation:
Toni Bentley's dancer memoir, written when she was 22 years old and dancing with the New York City Ballet, has become a minor classic. The book chronicles the excruciating and unforgiving lifestyle of a ballet dancer: 12-hour days with nearly nothing to eat, bloody feet from hours on point, nearly no social life as a result of the endless pursuit of perfection. But WINTER SEASON is no condemnation. Bentley's book balances these brutal realities with an unreserved love of dance and a nearly monastic devotion to the rigors of the art. Indeed, when Bentley briefly gives up dancing to pursue love, literature, and a more normal life, she suffers greatly from the lack of dance, and soon finds herself returning the beautiful tyranny of the stage.

Praise

"[WINTER SEASON] is one of the most intelligent and introspective glimpses ever offered into one of the most competitive and excruciatingly nervous existences in the arts." 08/29/1982
