The famous ballet dancer Misty Copeland spoke recently on the MSNBC Melissa Harris Perry Show of how great ballet dancers are also great athletes. I agree with her. I write about that comparison in my novel LOLA & THE WORLD OF BUDDY SHORTT. Lola Flemings is an African American ballet dancer who switches to modern dance because of racial difficulties she encounters in the ballet world. Please check out my novel. If you are a fan of classical dancing, you will enjoy LOLA & THE WORLD OF BUDDY SHORTT immensely.
