Learn how to thrive in intense, competitive environments with these secrets from one of America's premiere ballerinas--and get a sneak peek at what her life is really like. Ballet may look glamorous and effortless to audience members, but it requires grueling discipline. It's a competitive and physically and mentally demanding career that combines elite athleticism, artistry, and performance. Not only do dancers rehearse for six to eight hours a day before performing at night, but they also must make it all look easy! As a principal ballerina with New York City Ballet and a one-time Broadway star--not to mention a mother of three and an MBA student--Megan Fairchild is all too familiar with these challenges. In The Ballerina Mindset, she shares all the wisdom she's learned from her nearly two-decade career, drawing upon her own experiences to show us how she learned to overcome challenges ranging from stage fright to negative feedback to a packed calendar to weight management--and how we can do the same. Inspiring, warm, and revelatory, The Ballerina Mindset is the perfect how-to guide for dancers, athletes, artists, and anyone struggling to stay sane in a high-pressure environment.

‘I wish I had a wife . . . (they are) literally the secret weapon of a diplomat’s success.’ Mary Seet-Cheng, Lady diplomat, Singapore Nilima Lambah, wife of Satinder Lambah, an Indian Foreign Service officer gets candid and presents a cavalcade of interesting episodes, anecdotes and fascinating experiences culled from a life she lived in a host of countries for thirty years. From leading a life under the microscope of intelligence agencies in Pakistan to hosting a dinner just a few hours after an earthquake shook their home in San Francisco – her accounts are not only witty but also present a picture of the culture and society of the various places she visited. A Life Across Three Continents offers a glimpse into different aspects of a diplomat’s life from the point of view of his wife – its glitter and glamour; its protocol and surprises; and coming to terms with foreign soil and diverse cultures. Written simply, these recollections of Nilima Lambah have something for people of all ages and from all walks of life. An amalgam of wit and humour, this is both informative and entertaining.

"This book focuses on the tours made by dancers from the Maryinsky Theatre from St. Petersburg to Helsinki, Stockholm, Copenhagen and Berlin in the early summers of 1908-1910. The star of the group was Anna Pavlova, for whom theses performances were a stepping-stone to an international career. The tours were organized by a Finnish impresario, Edvard Fazer, who at the time was running his own concert agency in Helsinki."--Page 4 of cover.
