This is the story of Mia Slavenska, one of the most celebrated ballerinas of her time. It is also a story about historical memory, national identity, and the power of art. In her era, the 1930s through the 1950s, everyone in America who loved dance knew her name. Yet, in spite of a career that lasted decades, when Slavenska died in 2002 she believed that she had been completely forgotten. As her daughter, Maria, retraces Slavenska's life journey, she unearths the fascinating story of a maverick ballerina and a lost time of dance. Maria also discovers something more: Mia Slavenska hasn't been forgotten after all.
