What a time we had! Louisville Ballet director Robert Curran, choreographer/dancer Brandon Ragland, and artist Vinhay Keo came in to discuss the Mozart Divertimento collaboration premiering this weekend. All have been my guests before, but never all at once! Tune in to WXOX 97.1 FM/Artxfm.com at 10am each Thursday to hear artists talk about their work on LVA's Artebella On The Radio.

Trained at The Australian Ballet School and having enjoyed a thrilling and fulfilling career with The Australian Ballet as a Principal Artist, Robert Curran is now the Artistic Director of Louisville Ballet. Education and experience continually expanded his ability to move his own body on stage and through this, move an audience through a wide range of emotions. Beyond his dancing career he strives to continue to move people towards a satisfying encounter with dance. Robert is motivated by the form that a dancer gains from training in the traditions of classical ballet, where respect and discipline can facilitate breathtaking strength and freedom. He is also inspired by the innovation that forms the function of any artist, that being to bravely and boldly express oneself through art for the greater good of a community.
