New Children’s Book Tells the Extraordinary Journey of Robert Battle!
An exciting children's book on the life of Alvin Ailey Dance Theater’s artistic director, Robert Battle who won his initial Princess Grace Award in 1993 and later won a Princess Grace Statue Award in 2007 will be released in bookstores on Tuesday October 27! This biographical picture book, My Story, My Dance: Robert Battle's Journey to Alvin Ailey, tells the story of Battle's life as a young boy who slowly uncovers his passion for dancing and later becomes the hero of modern dance as we know him today! Children will be inspired by Battle's perseverance from wearing leg braces as a boy, where he dreamed of dancing to then making his way to Julliard where he saw a performance of Alvin Ailey's Revelations; a performance which gave him the motivation to become their artistic director today. Beautiful illustrations with vibrant colors fill the pages of My Story, My Dance: Robert Battle's Journey to Alvin Ailey and a heartfelt foreword from Robert Battle himself add to make this a very meaningful children's book.
