American Dancer Hired By Bolshoi Tells His Tale

Nov 7, 2017

The beauty of ballet comes at a cost.  It is not easy for the best dancers to portray that level of beauty, without often punishing physical conditions. 

David Hallberg endured that and childhood bullying and a career-threatening injury for his art. 

He is the first American ever to dance for the world-renowned Bolshoi Ballet in Russia. 

And he tells the story of his rise in A Body of Work: Dancing to the Edge and Back

We get some of the high- (and low-) lights when he visits The Exchange.
