Thanks for the link, Robert! That was fun to read. She is so lovely and sounds like a very good mother.

I remember from the dressing room interviews in the ABT Now! tape, when she said that having a sense of humor was really helpful, and it's clear from the interview it helps with motherhood as much as with a dancing career.

I alwyas think of her in "Center Stage" where she showed a wicked sense of humor in her characterization.

Nice interview with Kent:

Quote

How old were you when you started dancing?

I don’t have any memories of my life before ballet. When I was born, my mother asked my neighbor about ballet and where there were great adult classes. I sat and colored and watched the ladies [dance at MYB].

When I got to be 7 years old, Ms. Fonseca checked my feet and then gave me approval to begin lessons, and I was in MYB until I auditioned for Baryshnikov and went to New York and started my career.
