About the episode

In this third and final episode, Emily Molnar describes the tremendous opportunity she saw in heading Ballet BC at a turning point in its history. She outlines the three-year plan she developed before taking on its artistic directorship out of concern for its survival and place in the dance landscape of British Columbia and Canada. She attributes the success achieved to date to a small but strong group of highly committed individuals willing to reevaluate everything. Since July 2009, Ballet BC brought in 28 new works into its repertoire and implemented a successful resident-choreographer program. In closing, Emily defines her life-long fascination with the potential of the body and the expression of the body. And, prompted, she sketches her next three-year plan for Ballet BC.
