Sarah Hay and the Ballet

Tuesday, December 22nd, 2015

One of my latest feature interviews allowed me to talk a lot about a topic I haven’t had a chance to cover before: ballet. The story was for the New York Post‘s ALEXA fashion special. The subject: Professional ballet dancer Sarah Hay, who is currently the lead in the Starz drama Flesh & Bone, co-created by a former Breaking Bad writer. Oh, and it’s good people—real good.

After bingeing the eight-episode series, I got to talk all about it with Sarah, which you can read here: Sarah Hay in ALEXA magazine. We talked about how this was her first acting role ever, how true the ballet world in the show is actually depicted, and how she struggled within the dance world herself before rising to the top.

I always love interviewing singer/songwriter and actress Demi Lovato. She is one of those wise young souls who has been through more in her 21 years than some people experience in al lifetime. And she’s using her powers for good.

This time, it’s to guest edit Seventeen magazine’s August 2014 issue, with advice for the readers at seventeen.com about How to Be Confident No Matter What. I sat down with Demi on the couch at her apartment in L.A. while shared her best confident-building secrets, and a few rough moments she’s weathered on her way to loving herself. That’s her editor’s note for the piece. Check out some more of her story here:
