READ õ Bunheads READ & DOWNLOAD ì GARAKAMI.CO ✓ Sophie Flack As a dancer with the ultra prestigious Manhattan Ballet Company nineteen year old Hannah Ward juggles intense rehearsals dazzling performances and complicated backstage relationships Up until. Bunheads is a very subdued gentle novel about ballet dancing Think Black Swanminus craziness blood and sexThe uietness of this novel works both against it and to its advantageBallet dancing is an unforgiving competitive extremely demanding form of art Imagine being fired for having breasts big enough to reuire a bra It would be very easy to find some high drama in it to write a shocking novel around backstabbery injuries life threatening dieting exhausting endless rehearsals and it would probably be a dynamic exciting novel than BunheadsBut Sophie Flack chose to write a realistic story instead 19 year Hannah is a dancer with a major ballet company The novel follows her through a transformative year in her life during which she is trying to decide if her love for dance is strong enough to abandon all dreams of normality going to college getting to know her parents falling in love or even having enough free time to read a book and to dedicate herself entirely to her career Hannah s choice is not an easy one Even though her work is physically and emotionally draining and Flack doesn t shy away from giving readers all the gory details the rewards of it are huge too fame the tremendous rush of excitement during the performances the satisfaction when a momentary perfection of movement is achieved access to high society The novel is not perfect however It is not a very plot driven story it is contemplative and the characterization could have been deeper But if you have ever wondered what it takes to become a ballerina Bunheads holds all the answers You can t not develop respect for ballet dancers after reading this work

READ õ Bunheads READ & DOWNLOAD ì GARAKAMI.CO ✓ Sophie Flack T the other bunheads in the company for a star soloist spot or strike out on her own in the real world Does she dare give up the gilded confines of the ballet for the freedoms of everyday life. The writing was pretty terrible after reading the biography of the author it was pretty obvious the story was at minimum semi autobiographical not that theres necessarily anything wrong with that and I felt that she peppered the action seuences with ballet lingo to try to make her work credible in the ballet world The main character Hannah develops and has the same epiphany throughout the entire book but it takes her 300 pages to make the choice she s obviously been making all along Her romance with Matt seemed almost unnecessary and if I was Jacob I would ve run a long time agoThis book gave me no insight into the ballet world than Center Stage did and at least Center Stage made it exciting if not incredibly cheesy

I m stoked for this book My appreciation for Sophie Flack goes back than 10 years when I desperately envied her and the life I imagined she had Beautiful thin and definitely going somewhere she was featured all over the Discount Dance Supply catalogs and their Dance Magazine advertisements when I was a teenager Pouring over catalogs magazines and the few dance books I could get access to in semi rural Virginia I strived for ballet success I craved both knowledge of and entry to the distant metropolitan ballet community so starved was I for contact with that community that I vividly remember names companyschool affiliations and images of models in catalogs over a decade later How I wanted to look so stunning so long and to be singled out as she was At the time I imagined that she must certainly be a rising star the cream of the School of American BalletNew York City Ballet young crop weren t all the models that DDS bothered to credit ballet elites Now that I work in the dancewear business I recognize that knowing the right person s daughter is often all it takes to get photographed When Flack next came to my attention she d come to realize a lot of disappointing realities as well Her extraordinary scandalous infamous interview with Gia Kourlas was one of my favorite dance reading experiences of 2009 By then I d been living in New York for 7 years and come to love New York City Ballet while resenting its director Her raw frustrated anger in the interview continues to move me It resonates with some of my experiences and with many many dancers experiences across the field who work hard do great work and are ultimately undervalued by their artistic superiors Because both tradition and artistic necessity generally favor a directorchoreographer s preference over dancers feelings the dance community and press tend to stifle outbursts of dancer dissatisfaction which leads to this book The cliche is that anguish under pressure generates great art no Biting critiue can be refreshing to read even if the writer is only moderately gifted and thank god for good editors And Winter Season A Dancer s Journal born of similar frustration is one of the best dance books ever published From the jacket description Bunheads would seem to be a thinly veiled purge of Flack s experience at NYCBAnd cheers to you Sophie Flack For speaking up and finding ways to grow when you felt boxed in Word through the grapevine is that you re much happier now and I sincerely hope that you are
