Episode 89: Damian Smith

Principal Dancer Damian Smith discusses dancing Tybalt in Romeo & Juliet, including his approach to the character, learning to sword fight, and the nuances of working with various Romeos over the years. He talks at length about the 2010 tour to Australia he produced and directed, performing with a select handful of SF Ballet principal dancers. And he looks back on his 16 years with SF Ballet and what he’s learned about himself, why he dances, partnering, and making each performance fresh.
