Imagine getting to interview your career idol. For Nicole Fuches, this dream came true in a recent interview with Prima Ballerina at the San Francisco Ballet, Sasha de Sola. They recently met at a cafe in the heart of San Francisco. Listen in to their conversation about a career in ballet, Sasha’s favorite things to do in the Bay Area and the publication of her new illustrated bilingual book: On tiptoes • De puntitas which features two stories, one based on Sasha’s ballet career up to date and another one of a boy that gets inspired by her to be a dancer himself. 

On Martin Luther King Jr. Day, I got to spend time with one of the principal ballerinas at San Francisco Ballet: Sasha de Sola. It was not difficult to see her kindness, intellect, and eloquence, all of which showed she possesses the discipline of a ballerina unlike no other. It was an honor to meet her, and I encourage anyone with the free time to check out the San Francisco Ballet’s upcoming performances - Don Quixote, Kaleidoscope, and The Sleeping Beauty. I promise you will be blown away by the talent, stage presence, and emotion behind de Sola and her peers.
