Through photographs and interviews, Balancing Acts chronicles thirteen years in the often-dramatic lives of three principal dancers in the San Francisco Ballet (Kristin Long, Tina LeBlanc, and Katita Waldo) who continued to dance after becoming mothers. The book provides both an intimate backstage look at the inner workings of a world-class ballet company, and an examination of the challenges and joys that the 70% of employed mothers all face in common.
