Have you ever found yourself with a question that you just wish an American Ballet Theater dancer could answer? Well, maybe not all the time, but sometimes it sure would be nice to talk to someone who really knows the business. And now you can! A group of current and former ABT soloist including Sarah Lane and Craig Salstein have launched a new website this week called Ballet Mentor. Other names you might recognize have jumped aboard: Gillian Murphy, Cory Stearns, and Houston Ballet dancers Yuriko Kajiya and Jared Matthews. For now, the site offers one on one attention, but eventually they’re hoping to offer online ballet classes and nutrition advice. What a great resource for dancers to have at their (literal) fingertips!
