Alicia Graf Mack is the face of Alvin Ailey American Dance. Alicia joins me in the studio to talk about the back injury that is currently threatening to end her career. We also have a candid conversation about race in ballet, and the lack of women in executive roles in dance.

Thanks for posting the podcast link.  I'm a huge Alicia Graf fan from when she was performing at DTH.  A very special dancer.  Sounds like she will not be back at Ailey for their  2014 City Center engagement, and may not return to dance at all, depending on how she heals.  I for one will be very sorry if she quits dance, but I will always have memories of her exquisite performances.

Thank you, abatt.

Alicia seems very happy and optimistic for the future.

She's grounded, smart and talented.

A big thanks to you Christian and to Alicia Graf Mack for your great conversation about race in ballet.  It is wonderful to hear such frank, respectful discussions.
