Conversations on Dance: Carla Korbes

Happy #ConversationsTuesday! DanceWear Corner is the proud sponsor of the “Conversations on Dance” podcast.  Hosts Rebecca King Ferraro and Michael Sean Breeden were in our stores this past weekend for master classes to celebrate our anniversary!  But this week they are back at it sharing tons of new content from their recent trip to Vail for the Vail Dance Festival.  For their bonus content from Vail, click here.


This week Rebecca and Michael are joined by Carla Korbes, former Pacific Northwest Ballet Principal Dancer.  Carla was born in Brazil and moved to New York to study at the School of American Ballet at the age of 15.  In 2000, she joined the New York City Ballet as a member of the corps and was promoted to soloist in 2005.  Later that year, she moved to Seattle to join Pacific Northwest Ballet under the direction of Peter Boal, a former podcast guest.  Since her retirement from PNB in 2015 at the age of 33, she has been working as associate artistic director for LA Dance Project.  Later this month she will be starting her new position at Indiana University as associate professor of music in ballet.  Today they talk with her about her early career at City Ballet, what prompted her move to Seattle, and what post-retirement life looks like for her now.

Happy #ConversationsTuesday! DanceWear Corner is the proud sponsor of the “Conversations on Dance” podcast.  Most recently, we helped take the podcast hosts Rebecca King Ferraro and Michael Sean Breeden to New York to conduct in-person interviews with the ballet world’s best and brightest.  In the coming weeks they will be posting this content, and we can’t wait to share it with you!


Rebecca and Michael go to the apartment of Georgina Pazcoguin, Soloist with the New York City Ballet.  Georgina grew up in a large family in Pennsylvania.  In 2001 she attended the School of American Ballet for the year, became an Apprentice in 2002, and a corps member the following year.  In 2013 she was promoted to soloist.  Georgina has spent time performing on Broadway while continuing her ballet career: appearing in the 2016 “Cats” revival, “On the Town,” “A Chorus Line,” among others.  This extra-curricular element to her career isn’t the only thing that sets her apart.  She has said that though she loves being called a ballerina, she sees herself as the complete antithesis of the stereotypical ballerina.  So she says, “think of me as the rogue ballerina.”  Today Rebecca and Michael talk with the Rogue Ballerina about what it was like to dance in New York in the aftermath of 911, what challenges she came up against in her first years in the company, how she created a niche for herself, and how she works to break out of it.

In Person with Georgina Pazcoguin:
