Heather Watts: Part One

Ms. Watts was an established Balanchine dancer. Her career and place in history is very significant. Frankly, I was a little nervous dialing the phone on this one. After all, this is Heather Watts! However, it took less than 30 seconds for that feeling to fade once we connected. I really like Heather Watts. I love her honesty. I love her stories of Mr. B, and I also admire how candid she was when she discusses her story.
