What in your view has been the most significant change in the dance world since you started out as a young dancer. How would you counsel a young dancer who is just starting out?
I'm from a very different generation. There were the giant choreographers - Martha Graham, George Balanchine, Merce Cunningham, Trisha Brown - who were creating huge volumes of work... I came in at the tail end of the Balanchine [era], surrounded by his dancers.
