For many years Whistlestop Bookshop has been a strong supporter of the Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet, from its original genius-dreamer Marcia Dale Weary to the dazzling and dynamic institution that it is today. Cumberland County is now home to several studios of dance, and we welcome and support all of them. I particularly admire dance for a counter-intuitive reality: it is a bookish art even as it abstracts beauty and grace from physics and human movement. Great writing about dance surrounded it from the beginning, great photography is drawn to it, and artwork for both adults and children celebrates it. We welcome dancers throughout the year, we welcome their brave and heroic families, and we welcome the opportunity to stock wonderful books about the art.
