Dancing on the Whisper of God
by Jean Gilbertson

How does it look when Spirit touches an ordinary life? Dancing on the Whisper of God is a novel about spiritual awakening set in the world of dance.

Though choreographer Calvin Tropp is no believer in prayer, he is compelled to respond to a divine whisper: “We are going to make a new dance, and the theme is prayer.”

But there are only 63 days to opening night, and there is no score, no choreography, no sets, no lighting plan…

Tropp, the score composer, and three dancers put their artistic reputations on the line — and see their lives transform.

“It is always a pleasure to see an artistic discipline integrated into fiction and, of all the artistic expressions, ballet as a visual art form might be the most difficult. Gilbertson’s novel presents a creditable glimpse into the ballet world. Not only from the choreographer’s point of view but the composer, the dancers and the production staff. The anxiety that inevitably accompanies a world premiere and the ever-present component of fundraising are also depicted. Dancing on the Whisper of God brought back for me the agony and the ecstasy of bringing art to fruition.”

emeritus principal choreographer,
Pacific Northwest Ballet

“…This novel brings to light the positive transformational power of prayer. Gilbertson gracefully succeeds in her effort by presenting an engaging narrative, well-written dialogue, and emotionally revealing characters, all showcased against the backdrop of a classic art form…”
