Stardance Publisher's Summary

Nebula Award Winner, Novella, 1977

Shara Drummond was a gifted dancer and a brilliant choreographer, but she could not pursue her dream of dancing on Earth. So she went to space, creating a new art form in three dimensions. And when the aliens arrived, there was only one way to prove that the human race deserved not just to survive, but to reach the stars. The only hope was Shara, with her stardance.

This novel is an expanded version of the Hugo and Nebula Award-winning Stardance novella, which pioneered the concept of zero gravity dance - and even sparked the interest of NASA.
