"You're gonna be in pain. A lot"

This series is surprisingly candid. It's always nice to see what behind the costumes and the makeup :)

Author — Camilo Gómez


Amar is extremely good looking... and also talented. So clearly very much out of my league.

Author — Michaela Leach


"Most coveted rank"? I'm not sure. I have talked to many corps members who not ever want to face the pressure soloists face.

Amar is one of the most talented male dancers there, in my opinion. He is amazing

Author — Raquel Guzman


Unpopular opinion: Ashley Bouder seems so full of herself... I guess that mentality comes when you're a principal in one of the best companies in the world 😜

Dance requires so much dedication, but it's such a beautiful art! Thank you for your hard work, it is appreciated! We hope that even through the pressure, dance is still fun on stage!

I'm dancing at my city dance studio, I want to dance with New York City ballet so desperately, but I'm so far away from getting there

I think Craig hall should be principal

It's also about quality of life..and understanding that that is what the goal is inspite of the show and understanding the parameters of the show, of time and articulation or your does an orchestra do it or used to do even your own makeup you should be doing....and the makeup artist does the very last inspection or just your eyeshadow...I know...but then again how to keep the plaques from spreading and reappearing on your skin besides not sweating as much....

I'm a dancer and really like to join the nyc ballet but I'm in Malysia

It doesn’t say what company it is...somewhere American I guess. But NOT ‘the greatest company in the world’ !
That’s The Royal Ballet, The Bolshoi and The Kirov.
