Principal Dancer Dores André on her Years in the Corps de Ballet
and Dancing Juliet

Principal Dancer, Dores André, begins by describing her classically based training and her years spent in the corps de ballet, which she declares “harder than being a principal dancer.” She points to dancing Juliet in Tomasson’s full-length production of Romeo & Juliet, which was her first full-length principal role, as a career highlight; then compares that role to that of Swanhilda in Coppélia and its completely different challenges.
