This week we are joined by Zoe Zien, repetiteur and former Miami City Ballet dancer. Zoe was born and raised in New York City and received her training from the School of American Ballet. After graduating, Zoe joined the Miami City Ballet in 2003. Zoe remained in the company until her retirement from the stage in 2016, dancing a bulk of the company’s expansive Balanchine repertoire. Since leaving the company, Zoe has gone on to work as a repetiteur setting pieces for our former podcast guest, Justin Peck. Today we talk with Zoe about growing up in a family of artists, what drew her to the Balanchine tradition, the unique challenges of starting a new career teaching ballets, and her new project working on the new Broadway show, “Carousel.” Also, it’s a family affair for these next two weeks on Conversations on Dance, so stay tuned for our next episode when we talk with Zoe’s mother and beloved SAB teacher, Susan Pilarre.
