Join Jenn McRobbie as she interviews author Cheryl Ale on the writing and publishing of her book, The Spark: The Legacy that Changed the Dance World

Cheryl explains The Spark as something which lives in all of us. "It is the awareness, the anticipation, the a-ha of everyday," she told Dr. Angela Lauria of The Author Incubator. She explained that it's based on classical ballet specifically, which needed to get "that spark" again. 

Ballet was the subject which she naturally chose for her book since she grew up with this legacy, with her mother believing that dance could straighten her body.

The Spark is for creative artists and dancers-turned-teachers who are now struggling with the complexities of teaching.
