RF: The first time I danced “Opus 19/The Dreamer” by Jerome Robbins was at an outdoor amphitheater in Saratoga Springs, New York. It was the most exhausted I'd ever been in a performance and there was steam from our bodies that created an unbelievable atmosphere on stage at the end of the ballet. To top it off I looked up and saw the moon shining through the balcony.
3. VD: If you could meet any choreographer, living or not, who would it be and why?
RF: Without a doubt George Balanchine. He constantly shapes my world and teaches me new things about myself through his choreography. I never met the man, but his history is capable of doing things like that in my life.
