This book examines the life of one of America's most famous and prolific choreographers. Robbins, who is best known as the director and choreographer of the ground-breaking musical West Side Story was equally successful choreographing classical works for the New York City Ballet for which he was the associate director. Stunning, easy to read, and full of beautiful photos that supplement the narrative, this book is an intelligent and sensitive look at the interesting and complex personality of a Jewish boy who became an American dance legend.
