Happy National Dance Day!

There are some choreographers who's movements force a dancer out of their comfort zone, force them to find a part of themselves in the unfamiliar. Their creations seem strange, even otherworldly, and yet they resonate with the deep truths of the human experience. Working with these people is one of the great joys of being a ballerina. Being in the studio with Wayne McGregor and taking his Infra to the stage is an experience I will always cherish. Happy National Dance Day!
