NYCB Vol. 5 No. 5 - Nutcracker

[5/50] “I was cast to dance the role of the Candy Cane when the ballet premiered in New York. Jumping through that damn hoop at breakneck speed was not easy. I was trying to do it academically when Mr. B said, ‘Bobby, you just have to attack it . . . make it happen.’”

—Robert Barnett in an article for Arts ATL
