In part one of our conversation, we talk about her road to becoming a principal, dancer burn out, and how changing her approach preserved her career. In part two, I wanted to give Tess more time to talk about her position on ballet in the media. Her October 2013 interview in the Wall Street Journal started a deeper conversation about the way ballet is presented and perceived in the mainstream. Plus, she shares her views on the art of ballet in the media. Including, Sarah Jessica Parker's new project with NYCB and her thoughts on Breaking Pointe.
Carla Korbes appears on the next episode.
