Ballet dancers' bodies wear out fast. So to have a 20-year career -- let alone one with the same dance company -- is not considered an industry norm. At the Colorado Ballet, two dancers have achieved that: principals Sharon Wehner and Maria Mosina.
Wehner spoke with Colorado Matters host Ryan Warner, ahead of the ballet's season opener "La Sylphide." The full-length, romantic-era ballet runs at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House in Denver Friday through Oct. 11.
