Legendary ballet dancer Gelsey Kirkland and her husband, Michael Chernov, talk about creating The Gelsey Kirkland Academy of Classical Ballet. They discuss ballet’s role in the city’s culture, the history of classical ballet, how they came together, and their own individual paths in dance. Their new production of “Sleeping Beauty” will be presented in mid-May at the Schimmel Center at Pace University and their new summer camp begins at the end of June.
