About the Event

Join us for a fun Girls Ballet Adventure with New York City Ballet principal dancer Jenifer Ringer, author of her new memoir, Dancing Through It.

This special event, designed specifically for registered Girl Scouts San Diego and San Diego Civic Youth Ballet dancers, includes delightful performances by San Diego Civic Youth Ballet dancers, a discussion with Jenifer Ringer about her life in the ballet and body images issues in the dance world, light snacks, book signing, and the opportunity to meet a renowned ballet dancer and author up close and personal in an authentic setting.

Event is now open to all children, although family members and friends may also register simultaneously below with eligible girls.

Not available in the morning? You can still meet Jenifer at our afternoon Ladies Literary Tea Adventure.

About the Book and Author

In 2010, Jenifer Ringer, principal dancer at The New York City Ballet, received national media attention dubbed “Sugarplumgate” when a New York Times dance critic criticized her body weight rather than her dancing in a review.

Ringer appeared on both Oprah (“Real Life Black Swan“) and Good Morning America (“Are Dance Critic’s Remarks en Pointe?“) to address the evolving discussion of body weight and body image in the dance world, while reflecting on her own history with eating disorders and her experiences coming back to work as a dancer after having a baby.

Dancing Through It (Viking: February 2014) is Ringer’s remarkably candid, uplifting, and funny memoir of her journey to becoming a professional dancer and the story of her 23 years as a dancer at the New York City Ballet. it is also a meditation on body image and how it affects our identity and self-esteem.
