Langston likes basketball okay, but what he loves is to dance-ever since he saw the Alvin Ailey Dance Company perform. He longs to twirl into a pirouette, whirl into a pique. He wants to arabesque and attitude, grand battement and grand jete. When he walks, the whole street is his stage.
With his neighborhood cheering him on, will Langston achieve his dream?
