Conversations with David McAllister

Beyond the Ballet

David McAllister was interviewed on ABC Radio’s Evenings program by Christine Anu, just a couple of weeks after The Ballet, and the rest of Australia, went into lockdown. Alongside some sneaky hints at what The Australian Ballet might have in store once they return to our stages, David details how Company members are keeping fit at home and how much he is currently enjoying dancing in his lounge room.

David reflects on the impact of dance on his life, his legacy and his plans for life after The Australian Ballet. He even reveals to Christine his favourite dance move.

Listen to the conversation below.
