LANDSCAPE WITH MOVING FIGURES FOR BALLET DEVOTESS, BY LAURA JACOBS.

DANCE became Laura's life, her longing.  From ballet classes in Chicago to the Rozak Academy to writing dance reviews for a Chicago Paper gave birth to her embracing the idea of being a dance critic.

Dance critics everywhere agree that ballet is the most unforgiving of the ARTS.  From the very youngest age an aspiring dancer's body is scrutinized and judged:  too tall, too short, too fat, legs not long enough and that's just the start. And then there's the matter of race. Would a black dancer alter the uniformity of a line of white swans in "Swan Lake" and other classics?
