Rodney: I actually performed with American Ballet Theatre,

the company I worked with, in Santa Barbara one year.

And, thought it was such a beautiful community that after

my own dance career, I ended up starting my company

in Santa Barbara, California. It had a wonderful blend

of people who loved the arts, and the community

has some wealth and, really, appreciation. And

in 1995 I founded the company. Since then, it's been really-

I've been so privileged to have this company exist

for over 20 years now. We just came back from a tour,

a wonderful tour of Chile. A year and a half ago,

we were in China for two and a half months all over.

And, we toured quite extensively throughout the United States

as well. So, a lot of people don't realize. And, we've been-

one of myvery favorite, if not my favorite place to perform

is the Redlands Bowl! It's a venue where we can expose

so many people to the arts without them having to

pay a nickel to get in. So, it's just a wonderful venue.

And, we do a lot of story things. We do contemporary work.

We do classical. But, all the story things we do are

of our own creation. We don't go out and buy other people's.

We have choreographers that I work with, hand in hand.

So that's kind of the history of the company, and

we perform a lot and love being based in Santa Barbara.

I've got dancers from about seven other countries

represented within my company.

Deise: I started dancing because it's a very funny history.

I'm from Brazil, and I started- I was playing in the street.

I was playing soccer. Every young person

plays soccer in the street! And then,

you know? You play soccer, you use your foot. Right?

So, I was- the balls go all the wayhere. So, I put my leg

all the way uphere and my first teacher saw me,

and said 'how long have you done ballet?' I said

'ballet? What's ballet? I never heard of it before.'

And so, he invited me to his school.

So, that's how I started doing ballet!

Rodney: Well, the story of Cinderella is a classic,

as we all know in Cinderella. But, what I did is I made

the stepsisters amajor part of my production.

Of course, Cinderella and the prince is a beautiful

balletic part, and the fairies and everything.

But, I really focused a lot on the sisters,

and my sisters are two men! And then, the stepmother is

very wicked and mean, and the interaction between the

two stepsisters, the mother, and Cinderella

is just a wonderful blend that we find our

audiences have really been receptive to it.

It's almost slapstick! The humor is just really kind of

knock-down, drag-out funny! And, I just-

tome, it's- humor is the way

we bring people to us, a lot!

And then, we show them the beautiful dance and as the

ballet moves on, we give the beauty of thepas de deux

with the prince and Cinderella.

And, the touching parts of love and all that.

So, yeah. But, that's kind of the way my version

is a little bit different, and I focus

a lot on those characterizations.
