Episode 14: James Sofranko of the Grand Rapids Ballet Discusses the Misconceptions of Being a Man in Ballet

People may assume that men in ballet are “not masculine” or “not real athletes” – but that couldn’t be further from the truth!

From the demanding physical requirements like lifting women to performing amazing feats in front of a live audience… and in tights! One could argue that you have to be even more secure in your masculinity to pull it off. James Sofranko, the new Artistic Director for the Grand Rapids Ballet, joins Good Company to discuss his new leadership role, his big move from San Francisco, and what goes on behind-the-scenes… while drinking Vivant Tripel by Brewery Vivant!
