Many people believe that the work of a choreographer only takes place in a dance studio. While much of a dance maker’s product comes to fruition in the studio, there is a great deal of effort that must take place outside of this environment to complete a true work of art. In this episode of Pas de Chat, Barry talks about his career as a choreographer and explains the many aspects of a dance maker’s job that takes place outside of the studio.
