Madame Marlova Remembers / The Dancing Days of Lisa Marlova

Plot

Each week Madame Marlova tells a tale from the world of ballet. Many of them are stories of inspiration and courage for aspiring ballerinas in Madame Marlova’s class, while others teach morals, such as leaving nothing to chance because it can be too risky. Some have a more unusual take, such as one story about dancing marathons in the days of the Great Depression.

In a sequel The Dancing Days of Lisa Marlova,   Madame Marlova has retired and settles down to writing her memoirs. Now the story of how she became a top ballerina is told in full.
