Product Description

Product Description

Ballet is Martina’s world. Always has been. But underneath the stage lights, behind the curtain and choreography is loneliness.
On late nights, after rehearsals, in her small apartment, Martina wishes hers wasn’t the only shadow on the wall.

But Chicago winter winds are swirling and Martina’s music box world is tipped upside down when she is cast as the lead in the company’s next production. And if that isn’t enough...

He’s the “wolf of the Mariinsky Ballet.” A rebel with gray eyes. Maraav Levondovska is a brilliant dancer and Martina can barely admit to herself how watching him take the stage sets her imagination spinning.
But company director Alan Jung, the man crippled by the art he loved, seems to find new life in his star ballerina...

Three hearts in a dance made for two. A world made of music and motion. Come step Under Winter Lights: Part One!

Under Winter Lights: Part One by Bree M. Lewandowski is a first novel and a charming story set in a ballet company based in Chicago, during winter with the story centred upon their production of "The Nutcracker". There are ballet terms used throughout the story but do not worry if you know little about the positions and poses because Lewandowski explains all of them seamlessly within the text of the novel.

There are three main characters: Martina a young dancer who is a member of the Corps de Ballet; Maraav, a Russian/American who is a visiting, principal male dancer and there is Alan Jung, creative director and former dancer who was injured and forced to retire much earlier than expected. Not only is he a demanding task-master, he rules the company with his scathing remarks and disparaging comments. This trio are the core of the story with many secondary characters, all who are observers of the relationships between the three. Martina is chosen to dance the lead of "Clara" in the new production and as she is in her first year with the company and only 19 years old, this is a shock selection, to say the least. Maraav arrives with a reputation of being a temperamental "bad boy", a womaniser, a "grey wolf"! All the dancers are drawn to him because of his looks, talent and reputation and he partners Martina as "The Nutcracker" turned "Prince" in the ballet.

Lewandowski confronts the negative issues in the life of a ballet dancer head on. She doesn't try to cover-up the torture of hours of practice, the rigid lifestyle, the need to always watch their diet, the pain and torture that they endure while on point; it is a harsh life, with little to appeal but the emotion of the dance.
