Why is ballet still relevant?
"I hope it still is. Within our audience it rare to find someone of my age or generation. Though as an art form we have to preserve what has been created over the past several hundred years, ballet has moved to a place beyond tutus and tiaras and is now in a league shared with some of the most athletic professions. Ballet is still relevant because it has kept evolving, and with that, so too should the mindsets of our audiences."
