1 videocassette (U-matic, NTSC) (28 min.) : sd., col.; 3/4 in.
Dancers Hilda Morales, Tim Wengerd, and Tere O'Connor discuss various aspects of a dance career: the sacrifices involved, the differences between the dancer's economic and social status in the U.S. and abroad, the experience of performing and touring with a company, the different career spans of ballet and modern dancers, and other topics. Wengerd recalls working with Martha Graham as a member of her company; Morales discusses Baryshnikov's directorship at American Ballet Theatre. Each guest is seen performing in a recorded excerpt: Morales in Something between me, O'Connor in his own choreography for Construct-a-guy, and Wengerd in his Journey to the mouth of the river. In Esoterica balletica, Thea Nerissa Barnes talks about three qualities that a dancer needs in today's world.
