Episode 303: Wendy Whelan

She’s been with the New York City Ballet for 30 years, rising from apprentice to principal to associate artistic director. “When I moved to New York at 15, by myself, I moved into Jacques d’Amboise’s home. He rented the third floor of his brownstone to four young ballet students.” The world’s coolest boarding house. I want the sit-com rights to that story. This is our first pandemic Zoom episode. Forgive the audio quality and my occasional despondence.
