On Season 2 we speak with the most incredible guests—from Sydney Dance Company's Rafael Bonachela, the Australian Ballet’s Amy Harris and Dana Stephensen, Bangarra’s Deborah Brown, the Royal Ballet’s Steven McRae and Strictly Ballroom’s Paul Mercurio. There are life highs, career lows, and we chat through everything from bullying and sexuality, to eating disorders, post partum depression and navigating retirement.
