    Legs up! How you can increase arabesque flexibility

    Australian-born Só Dança ambassador Bianca Bulle recently retired from the stage to pursue a teaching career, following a satisfying performing career with both the Los Angeles Ballet and Miami City Ballet.

    The show must go on: Adapting and thriving through COVID-19

    The Show Must Go On. It’s a phrase that we dancers know well, and it speaks to our adaptability, our resilience and our ability to thrive under pressure.

    Dancers often envision the “long game”: make it into a certain company, get a certain role, make principal, get glowing reviews and go down in the dance history books as a visionary -- all with 100 percent focus on the art form at hand and at heart.
