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 piqué. He wants to arabesque and attitude, grand battement and grand jeté. When he walks, the whole street is his stage. A story of self-expression and following your dreams, When Langston Dances is an inspiring example for children to explore and discover their passions, no matter how out of reach they may seem.
With his neighborhood cheering him on, will Langston achieve his dream?
