The Pursuit of Perfection: A Life of Celia Franca
Celia Franca was born into a working-class British family in 1921 and possessed a drive that was almost unrivalled. She started dancing when she was four, becoming a star performer. When a group from Toronto wanted to establish a major ballet, they brought Celia across the Atlantic to be its founder. Celia built the National Ballet of Canada into a major cultural force. The Pursuit of Perfection tells of the battles, heartbreaks, successes and accolades Celia and the ballet shared.
