Last month I was asked to be on Dance Network’s podcast, the Barretender. I had a fun time going back in history and telling many dance stories from my Rockette and ballet years.
I don’t often speak of my extensive dance past since I’m now thoroughly consumed in the Pilates and scoliosis world, but in this interview you’ll hear a lot of dance memoirs that most haven’t heard. Did you know I had to wear knee braces during my first season with the Rockettes whenever I wasn’t onstage? I also had to take lots of anti-inflammatory medication because I was in so much pain. You’ll hear how my physical pain from scoliosis and dance related injuries paved the way to the creation of Spiral Spine. My heart for the scoliosis world comes through loud and clear at the end of the interview.
