About the Christopher Wheeldon Interview

My short bio: Hello there! It's Christopher Wheeldon. I'm a ballet choreographer for international ballet companies and recently directed my first Broadway Musical, the Tony Award Winning "An American in Paris." Tickets are still available here: http://www.anamericaninparisbroadway.com/. We'll be going out on a national tour of the USA opening in Boston on the 27th of October. Coming to a city near you!

I've trained at the Royal Ballet School in London and danced with the Royal ballet and the New York City Ballet. I was the first resident Choreographer for the NYC Ballet and currently an artistic associate of the Royal Ballet.

For an example of a complex dramatic piece of storytelling ballet that moves at the pace of a movie check out my "Winters Tale," based on the play by Shakespeare, with The National Ballet Canada at Lincoln Center New York City July 28-31: http://national.ballet.ca/Productions/2016-17-Season/Winters-Tale-Lincoln-Center-2016
