Love!

What an amazing resource! Listened to just one episode and it was just what I needed as a parent to hear. I can't wait to listen to all of the episodes and share with my dancer. Thank you!!

Great for aspiring dancers

My 2 aspiring dancers listen every week on their way to school. They love the advice they receive from professionals, but their favorite part of the podcast is when they hear distinguished dancers get interviewed and they find out they are real people too. Even my ballet boy has learned a thing or two from the q/a series. Our favorite episode of Ask Megan was when she interviewed Tiler Peck. It was exciting to hear how professional dancers interact with each other outside of dance. We hope the show continues for years to come.

Informative and Entertaining

Kimberly has really put together a very informative podcast that my daughter and I enjoy listening to. The Ask Megan series is fantastic for aspiring NYCB dancers, like my daughter! Kimberly’s guests are interesting and relevant to the ballet world. Thank you for this!
