Marie van Goethem rises onto her toes & floats across the stage of the Paris Opera. And in that moment, 14-year-old Marie is happy. When she’s not dancing, she is tormented by hunger, overwhelmed by her mother’s uncontrolled drinking, & angered by her sister’s selfishness. However, when Edgar Degas demands Marie’s presence in his studio, it appears that her life will be transformed. Each week as she poses for the famous artist, Marie dreams -- of a life without poverty, of being with her one true love, & of becoming a star of the ballet. Here is the story of the girl immortalized in Degas’s  famous sculpture, “Little Dancer Aged 14.” It’s a heartbreaking tale of passion for ballet, of loyalty to family, & of enduring love. Ages 12 & up.
