David Hallberg talks about his goals for the dancers of the Australian Ballet.

Quote

He’s stoking a fire that’s already alight – perhaps more than ever, he says, thanks to the pandemic.

“I feel like it whittled out people [for whom] maybe it was just that much too hard,” he says. “To get through hardship there’s a sense of, in a dancer, ‘dance or die’. Dance not for financial benefit, not for public benefit, but just an intensely personal drive and ambition and love for what they do. It’s the calling. It’s a force, that’s stronger than themselves.”

A review of the second episode of Sadler's Wells and BBC Arts' "Dancing Nation" by Jann Parry for DanceTabs.

Quote

Dancing Nation tries not to frighten potential viewers unused to watching dance by having a presenter, Brenda Emmanus (in the gushing Anita Rani role for Royal Ballet streaming) reassuring audiences at home that each offering is amazing. The brief guides she provides to what we are about to see prove mystifying since extracts from complete works make little sense out of context. Would baffled viewers bother to find out more from the internet or just scroll through Dancing Nation until something catches their attention?

Dancers meet outdoors for ballet class.

Quote

Heintzelman, 27, is part of a group of dancers who gather at Marsha P. Johnson State Park, on the Williamsburg waterfront, for a weekly class and rehearsal. Organized by the choreographer Phoebe Berglund, who leads a ballet barre warm-up in white jazz sneakers and a big blue parka, the group started taking shape in August and has continued to meet regularly, even as mild days have given way to harsher weather. (For safety and style, the dancers wear matching blue satin masks embroidered with the letters PBDT, for Phoebe Berglund Dance Troupe.)
