Elizabeth and her older sister Jane are corps de ballet dancers at Ballet Theater NY They have been cast in the former dancer now turned choreographer Mr Darcy s new show Elizabeth is not a typical looking ballet dancer but Mr Darcy sees something in her dancing that he is looking for and uses her for his choreography even though she is not a soloist The principal dancer and sister to the director Caroline Bingley really doesn t like that This book is like the movie Center Stage meets Pride and Prejudice I think it would make a better movie than a book It is enjoyable to watch dancing rather than read about it The author used all the technical terms for the dance moves and since I don t know what they are my brain just inserted and they danced Other than that it was good The characters were pretty much true to the originals however I did think Georgiana was a little juvenile The plot changes to incorporate modern times and the dancing worked really well Overall a pleasant read

Dance is the hidden language of the soul Martha GrahamI checked s reviews to see how readers were responding to the story There were 42 reviews 67% were 5 stars and 26% were given 4 stars That s pretty darned good I just want to say I love the cover it is most excellent I can just see her as Elizabeth Bennet Good choice This was an Austenesue type of story It was a Pride and Prejudice variation and it was placed in the world of dance There were names similar to the PP names the number of characters were trimmed down a bit and we were placed in a modern setting Elizabeth and her sister Jane were principal dancers in a dancing troupe located in New York City Lizzy s friends were Lydia and Charlotte There is even a Wickham character rat bastard that caused trouble with his lies along with a jealous green eyed Caroline and a Louise that were simply horrid A Lady Catherine type gave grief to all within her sphere and her daughter Anne was a disappointment to her We also have a toady character named Collins who practically worshiped her and clung to her every word Darcy and a much older and wiser Georgiana round out our list of characters Her story was a bit sad I was surprised that this worked I was hesitant about reading this It has been a long time since I d read a balletdance story I was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed this work The basic Austen outline was in place The insult the misunderstanding between Darcy and Lizzy her thinking his looking at her was to find fault him fighting his feelings and then finding out that her feelings had been tainted by Wickham Darcy sends her a letter explaining his feelings what he did to and for Jane what happened between Georgiana and Wickham and his thoughts regarding her performance in the dance Then we have their arguments fighting sexual attraction yielding to sexual attraction dance performances dancer jealously gossip and accusations deceit and sabotage All the elements of PP were there As I was reading I found myself goingOK we ve done that problem so we should be approaching this action this reaction and then the resolution The author did a really good job keeping the reader engaged There were a few places where I think it took too long to get from one place to another However the tension needed to play out so we could resolve the difference between the principal characters There was a really nice Epilogue Those who do not like the dance theme may struggle with the terminology techniues and nuances of the dance environment I really liked how the author pulled us right into the practice sessions The writing was well done I was too engaged to notice any editing problems There was a bit of language the f word and a few others and scenes of mild sexual activity however not graphic but a lot of sexual tension that built throughout the story between our dear couple SPOILER view spoiler I am curious as to what happened to Wickham Caroline and Anne I kept expecting Wickham to do something with or to the Lydia character What about Charlotte and Collins That was never addressed Georgiana s music was used a lot and we could have had an epilogue about her success Maybe her name on the program was that acknowledgement It s not that there were threads left hanging it s just I was wondering about these characters hide spoiler
