Inside Great Performances: Dance in America

Last week, MCB had the pleasure of taping Twyla Tharp’s “The Golden Section”, and George Balanchine’s Square Dance and Western Symphony for Great Performances: Dance in America to air on PBS in 2011. The entire company was ecstatic to have this opportunity and everyone involved worked tremendously hard on this project.

We talked to soloist Callie Manning about her filming experience. She shares with us the differences between dancing onstage and dancing in a TV studio, what changed about her makeup routine, and what was the most challenging part of the whole process.
