My guest on this episode, Al Blackstone, is an Emmy-nominated director, choreographer, and educator and the recipient of the 2011 Capezio A.C.E. Award for Choreographic Excellence.
Though well known for his witty and emotional work on the hit TV show So You Think You Can Dance, Al is perhaps best known for his original narrative style which blends dance and his own brand of theatrical storytelling.
Al talks about the transition from walking away from your comfort zone to throw yourself into something new, which is what he did when he made the transition from Broadway dancer to choreographer.

Along the way we talk about some of Al’s greatest teachers and mentors and what happened when he auditioned for Madonna.
