I loved reading about your experience! It really resonated as I also began ballet classes late --even later at age 29. Dancing was like nothing else and I continue to be a passionate dancegoer. Thank you again.

Tom, I enjoyed your excerpt on ballet and dance. I, too, love to dance. My mother graduated from U of Wisconsin, with a degree in dance. She later studied modern dance with Martha Graham, the diva of modern dance and a renowned choreographer. I studied modern dance with Graham's husband, Erik Hawkins. But, after years of expressive floor work, I wanted to do get on point, do pirouettes, and wear a tutu. Now, I love to dance Salsa.

Tom, I had know idea you were a dancer as well as a writer about dance. I only knew you as Cassie's Dad when I taught her at SAB and when she danced in Miami City ballet along with my daughter Zoe.
Can't wait to read the whole book. Congratulations and best wishes, Suzy Pilarre
