For the past seventeen years, Jonathan Porretta has wowed Pacific Northwest Ballet audiences. The principal dancer has been featured in numerous roles, displaying power and elegance in breathtaking performances.

How did a boy from New Jersey overcome bullying and other challenges, to end up as a ballet star? His inspirational story unfolds in the new book, Out There: Jonathan Porretta's Life in Dance. Jonathan and the book's author, award-winning journalist Marcie Sillman, shared the inspiration for the insightful project.

Jonathan and Marcie will sign copies of Out There on Sunday, November 13, following a performance of the ballet, Brief Fling. You do not need to attend the performance to attend the signing.
