This week we are joined by Ashley Bouder, Principal Dancer with New York City Ballet. Ashley began her training at age 6 at the Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet with Marcia Dale Weary. In 1999 she moved to New York City to attending the School of American Ballet full time. She was named an apprentice the following June with the New York City Ballet and was promoted to Principal in 2005. She is now the artistic director of The Ashley Bouder Project which had it’s most recent run last week in New York. Today we talk with her about her career, how she works to make herself more versitle, how she returned to dancing after having a baby, and if a run for political office is in her future.
