ETHAN STIEFEL INTERVIEW

on Dance Channel TV. He talks with Los Angeles critic Lewis Segal about his injuries, his return to the stage, the meaning of classical dance, his role models, his work in Center Stage, and his future. Pretty good interview.

  1. Tonya – Thank you! This was really great. He's so soft-spoken, his voice and pacing, throughout the interview …very thoughtful and candid and genuine and humble. I thought it was a really interesting interview. About half-way through, he speaks about not over-analyzing or obsessing too much (with rehearsal video); to not forget that it's about being in the moment, performing in the moment. His wording is much better than my poor summary – but I found that bit particularly profound and insightful, interesting and noteworthy. What an intelligent and gifted artist. And it's so great to get an update on him! Thank you for finding this!

    Speaking of updates, on favorites! : …a cute little interview with Julie Kent (my long-time MOST favorite ballerina, whose career I've followed from its beginning.)
