If pherank invents the next big monetized Internet thingy, he can have his own private ballet company on that island.

 

Precisely my first thought!   ;)   Suzanne Farrell Ballet South Pacific. Or maybe the Edward Villella Grass Skirt Initiative.

 

Yes, Christian would be welcome to set up a Radio Free Ballet station.

Carla Korbes is a principal dancer with the Pacific Northwest Ballet.

 

In part one of our conversation, we talk about her injury and the road to recovery. We also talk about living and working in New York, and her relationship with Artistic Director, Peter Boal.

 

In part two, we talk about the keys to success in ballet. You may be surprised what recipe we've discovered! We also talk about her life in Seattle, and her thoughts about social media and ballet on television.

 

Listen, subscribe, enjoy!

Dr. Linda Hamilton successfully made the transition from a being Balanchine dancer to a respected doctor. She has dedicated her life to helping future generations manage the struggles of being a professional dancer.

I have loved each and every interview.  I think that Linda Hamilton had it right when she said that you are using new media in a way that provides depth and understanding (my paraphrase).

 

I hope Dr. Hamilton does speak with you again.  I also wonder if Suzanne would do an interview.  She would be wonderful.   I heard her once in a pre-performace talk for her company.  She is unique in every way.  There is a mystique about her.  I wonder if it is compatible with new media.  Perhaps it is - what do you think?

Hi everyone,
Well, I am just one of many who would love to talk to Ms. Farrell. If the podcast had funding or a sponsor, I'd go to DC to do it!

I appreciate the kind words. It's nice to know the interviews are being heard. I try and check this page every week or so. I am a little behind at the moment.

You can always send me an email. I am interested in ideas and subject matter. Scheduling is difficult right now because of Nutz. But, there's some great shows falling in line.

 

All the best.

Christian

I think the most important point she makes is about dancers when they explore new fields for their post-performing life. Many people have spoken about how hard it is to find something they love as much as dance, but she speaks about the difficulty of dealing with false starts along the way.

In this episode, legendary teacher Finis Jhung walks us through his life. We learn about his career as a dancer, and then his unconventional path to becoming a teacher. It's a great oral history. Take a listen.

Another great episode, Christian - Mr. Jhung can certainly give a good talk - "oral history" is the right term.

Interesting interview with Mr. Jhung.  I respectfully submit Eliot Feld as a possible person to interview.  He was child in SAB, was in the original cast of West Side Story, was a principal dancer in ABT, had his own company for a time.  I'd love to hear what he had to say.

Ms. Watts was an established Balanchine dancer. Her career and place in history is very significant. Frankly, I was a little nervous dialing the phone on this one. After all, this is Heather Watts! However, it took less than 30 seconds for that feeling to fade once we connected. I really like Heather Watts. I love her honesty. I love her stories of Mr. B, and I also admire how candid she was when she discusses her story.
