Hallberg Talks About Joining The Bolshoi Ballet : NPR

David Hallberg, a South Dakota native and one of the most talented male dancers in the world, is the first foreign dancer to become a “premier” dancer with the famed Bolshoi Ballet. He will, however, remain as a principal dancer with the New York-based American Ballet Theater.

MELISSA BLOCK, host: Russia’s legendary Bolshoi Ballet is making history. For the first time, a foreigner – an American, no less – will join the Bolshoi as a principal dancer. He is 29-year-old David Hallberg, who’s currently with American Ballet Theatre in New York.

Hallberg has wowed critics and audiences with his strength, precision, elegance and nobility on the stage. Now, he’s taking his talents to Moscow. He told me that when he got the offer, he was stunned.
