I danced with Suzanne Farrell Ballet.
00:06
She was the best coach I've ever had.
00:10
Learning some of the great Balanchine Ballets,
00:13
that were choreographed on her,
00:14
was a really special, moving process.
00:17
I remember she was teaching me the ballet Chaconne,
00:21
which is one of my personal favorites,
00:23
and instead of saying walk three steps and turn around,
00:28
she said you walk over here and you feel
00:32
someone's watching you and there's a breeze that
00:37
brushes your shoulder and that makes you turn.
00:40
And even that way of teaching embodies the ballet
00:44
in a completely different way.
