Dancing with Broken Bones

The book reveals a combination of personal life experiences, challenges and triumphs, ups and downs, victories and defeats.

This personal commentary, Dancing With Broken Bones chronicles the life of an untrained dancer through various life experiences and presents various narratives on how the movements and the nuances of dance steps can serve as a therapeutic route of escape and as a coping mechanism with life itself.  Dancing With Broken Bones endeavors to share personal life experiences through the lenses of a dancer.  The stories will entertain, enlighten, and inspire you to embrace your own dance…for such a time as this.  Shall we dance?
