Biography & Memoir
As a principal dancer with the New York City Ballet (now retired), Jenifer Ringer knows what it's like to make it to the top of the rarefied world of classical ballet. In Dancing Through It, Ringer goes behind the scenes at one of the most renowned dance companies in the world and shares her own journey from student to star, candidly discussing both her struggle with an eating disorder and the media storm that erupted after a New York Times critic implied that she was overweight.
An unusually upbeat account of life on the stage, Dancing Through It is also a coming-of-age story and an inspiring memoir of faith and of triumph over the body issues that torment all too many women and men.
