Beautiful Ballerina

(3) K-3 Photographs by Susan Kuklin. Four African American ballerinas of various ages and at different stages in their work with the Dance Theatre of Harlem are photographed in dramatic, fluid poses. The poetic text, with its refrain of "Beautiful ballerina, you are the dance," completes this paean to dance and the young women who work hard to create the illusion of easy gracefulness.
