Dear Library Patrons, The mission of NYPL is to inspire lifelong learning, advance knowledge, and strengthen our communities. Government support only pays for a portion of our work, so we rely on you to help - from stocking our shelves with amazing books, expanding our e-Book selection, classes, events, or even making free WiFi accessible to all. We are trying to raise $425,000 by December 31: an ambitious goal, but one that will fund incredible learning and reading in our community. Please consider donating to help keep our services free to all New Yorkers in 2015 >>

Whelan discusses the usefulness of watching herself on video; her relationship with Jerome Robbins and experiences dancing his ballets; how events in her personal life influenced her development as a dancer; her relationship with Christopher Wheeldon and the roles he choreographed for her; her experiences working with Alexei Ratmansky; her dance partnership with Jock Soto; her experience teaching Wheeldon's Liturgy to New York City Ballet dancers, including Sara Adams; how she studies music for the ballets she performs in; her role in Lynne Taylor-Corbett's ballet The seven deadly sins; her relationship with Peter Martins; her thoughts on New York City Ballet and why she is glad to have spent her career there.
