Dancing in the Wings

From big feet to dancing the role of a lifetime, Dancing in the Wings is a modern day fairy tale by dancer Debbie Allen. Sassy is taller than her fellow dancers, has bigger feet and an attitude to match her name, but still she feels like the ugly duckling.  Yet dreams do come true.  Kadir Nelson illustrates this ballet story.

Try comparing this story with a classic version of “The Ugly Duckling”.
