              Award-winning New York City Ballet soloist Georgina Pazcoguin, aka the Rogue Ballerina, gives readers a backstage tour of the real world of elite ballet--the gritty, hilarious, sometimes shocking truth you don't get to see from the orchestra circle. It's the Kitchen Confidential ...for the ballet world. Swan Dive pitches us into the fascinating, dizzying lives of the dancers in one of the most revered ballet companies in the world. Georgina Pazcoguin, the New York City Ballet's first Asian American soloist, tells her unfiltered story of leaving small-town Pennsylvania for New York City and training as a professional athlete, miles away from her parents, before finishing high school. Rocked by scandal in the wake of the #MeToo movement, the NYCB--along with the rest of the ballet community--is at an inflection point, inching toward progress in a strictly traditional culture, and Pazcoguin doesn't shy away from the real darkness inherent in sports. She is one of the few dancers standing up against the sexual harassment and racism that usually is ignored. But along with her desire for justice and a deep respect for her craft, she has an unapologetic sense of humor about the cutthroat, literally survival-of-the-fittest culture of ballet. She relishes telling us about the torture (but economic necessity) that is the holiday Nutbuster season and holds nothing back in relaying the face-plants, backstage fights, and raucous company bonding at the NYCB.
