Introducing The ‘Conversations on Dance’ Mail Bag

Posted by on 09.20.2016

On June 26th, I embarked on an exciting new adventure with my colleague and close friend, Michael Sean Breeden.  As dancers with Miami City Ballet, we often conduct pre-performance talks before a show to give audiences an inside look into the ballets they will be seeing that evening.  It is something we have always enjoyed, so we came up with an idea to expand upon the concept.  So the ‘Conversations on Dance‘ podcast was born.  Through this platform we bring listeners content on all things ballet, to connect audiences with our world, and conduct interviews with ballet’s best and brightest.

Since it’s conception, we have published 13 weeks worth of content of which we are quite proud.  We have been overwhelmed by the response from our listeners.  And we want nothing more than to continue this project and grow it.  We have exceptional guests in the pipelines that we can’t wait to share with the world.  We want it to be a surprise, but we know these treasures of the ballet world will make for wonderful content.

Through this process we are also dancing full time with Miami City Ballet getting ready to start our performing season at the end of October.  We do all of this work in our free time, while also juggling the schedules of our guests.  So while we are on a short hiatus while we organize our future content, don’t be discouraged: we are just prepping for the wonderful things to come!

In the mean time, we wanted to open up the floor for some questions to be entered into a mail bag of sorts.  We know that we have over 2,000 loyal listeners, so we would like to hear from you! Are you a dancer, a parent, a student, a teacher, an audience member?  We would love to hear your thoughts and if you have any specific questions that you would like us to cover in a future episode.

To enter a question into the “Conversations on Dance” Mail Bag, post a comment below, email rebecca[at], or tweet me, @bexking.

  1. I’m curious about how choreography works. Is it written down (the steps, the movements, etc) or does it exist in muscle memory and demonstration? (you can tell, I am purely an audience member lol)

  2. What is a performance day like? How do make sure your body is peaking for a performance (rest, eating, warm up, etc)?
