Imagine a little girl on a stage. She wants your applause, approval--and love. As she matures into a young woman, her desire for love continues but her insecurities grow as she feels the pressure to dance harder, faster, and better than ever before... Asking "What audience are you trying to please?", this book reminds young women that God is the ultimate audience--the only one who has given His life so that they can dance. Twenty-something author Shannon Kubiak, addressing issues of self-esteem, inner beauty, dating, friendships, family, and integrity, encourages girls to find their place on God's stage--and to discover the amazing acceptance in dancing for the Creator alone.

A Favorite Author Among Teen Girls
Most young women yearn to be chosen, to be called out from the crowd and loved for who they are. In The Divine Dance, Shannon Kubiak Primicerio acknowledges this desire and likens teen girls to dancers, constantly performing to please the "audiences" in their lives. But in family, peers, teachers, and others, young women forget that they were created to perform for God alone. Promicerio provides readers with guidance and encouragement to stop dancing for the world and to start dancing for an audience of One.
