Christy has something very cool and different this week on Breakfast All Day A La Carte, which she's excited about sharing. Theresa Farrell is a longtime ballerina and the executive director of the American Contemporary Ballet here in Los Angeles. She’s elegant and radiant but also genuine and sweet as can be, and Christy loved having the chance to chat with her for a while. We discuss growing up in Saratoga Springs, New York, where she started dancing at age 8; beginning her career in New York City and working with Lincoln Jones to create the American Contemporary Ballet; and bringing ACB to L.A, where they’ve taken an innovative approach to making ballet accessible in a beautiful, unexpected environment. (Their latest production, “Variations on Raymonda,” opens this week.) We also talk about her favorite ballet movies. Because in theory, this is a movie podcast! Put on your dancing shoes, and enjoy.
