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.
