Duty to teach
When Melinda Roy was asked to teach ballet, she balked. She was an accomplished dancer — a former principal with New York City Ballet — and a Tony-nominated choreographer who was currently working on Broadway. But a dance teacher? ”At first, I didn’t really have faith in myself,” she said. “But I felt that I should give something back because I had fantastic teachers like George Balanchine, Jerome Robbins. I felt it was my duty to teach.” Posted on July 12, 2009.
