Raised in South Carolina, Jenifer Ringer led a typical kid's life until she sat in on a friend's ballet class, an experience that would change her life forever. By the age of twelve she was enrolled at the elite Washington School of Ballet and soon moved to the School of American Ballet. At sixteen she was a professional dancer at the New York City Ballet in Manhattan, home of the legendary George Balanchine and Jerome Robbins. In this autobiography, she shares behind-the-scenes of her remarkable journey from ballet student to star. An upbeat account of life on the stage, Dancing Through It is also an inspiring memoir of faith and triumph over the body issues that torment all too many women and men.
