Tomorrow an adolescent heart-throb is going talk about his book on Life on the Water on KLAW. Although I only saw Jacques D'Amboise dance in two movies I thought he was the most amazing dancer and gorgeous man on earth. Sitting in my bedroom, staring out the window at whatever view there was (depending on where my family was living), I would plot about how to meet him. Who knew it would take years and writing a novel in order to make that happen? Tomorrow, he's going to be on West Coast Live at The Oberlin Dance Collective Theater discussing his book I Was a Dancer--a book in which he talks about some amazing and unselfish decisions he made so children could learn to dance. So will Meg Wolitzer. Please tune in.
Join us at THE ODC THEATER, 3153 17th Street (at Shotwell) in San Francisco, to make beautiful radio together.
JACQUES d'AMBOISE brings us his fascinating memoir I Was A Dancer, recounting his days as a principal dancer in the New York City Ballet. He also sheds light on his decision to leave the Ballet to found the nonprofit National Dance Institute, bringing the joy of dancing to millions of public school children of the next generation.
