Growing up in an orphanage in the Bronx, separated from the mother she adored, Lilly never knew the care and loving attention of a stable family. But she didn't let mounting obstacles and family tragedy stand in the way of her dreams. From the time she was a little girl, when the nuns first took her to see the Rockettes perform, Lilly was driven to become a dancer. This is the compelling story of her spirited journey from the Lt. Joseph P. Kennedy Jr. Home for Children to the great stage at Radio City Music Hall-where she danced her way into history as the first Latina Rockette.
Today, Lillian Col n inspires others to find the joy in dancing and was recently featured in Forbes' 50 Over 50 2021 as a woman of excellence.
