H. Mathleen ,

Ballet talk for adults….hooray!

FINALLY…an "inside baseball" ballet podcast by and for an adult audience! I enjoy the humour, the snark, the backstage perspectives, the innuendo and "adult words." The kids have PLENTY of ballet/dance material to chose from, but James' podcast is a great treat for grown fans.
