The Interview with Janet Panetta, conducted by Gia Kourlas, was audio recorded on January 28 and February 4, 2011.
In this excerpt Janet Panetta describes the profound influence of Antony Tudor on her life, both as an artist and as a teacher.  Although characteristically irreverent, Panetta’s deep admiration for Tudor is evident.
