Q. What did you learn from people you worked for?
A. It’s important to make people feel that they matter, whether you are in the corps de ballet or the top principal. Peter Wright was my director and was really somebody I admire. You could be there in a studio, tired, trying to get the will together, and he was somebody who would walk into the room and not scare you but actually get you enthused about what you’re doing. He would say to all the girls, “Each one of you, you’re all ballerinas, you’re all going to sparkle,” and you could see them physically grow.
