Ever wonder what the life of a professional ballet dancer is like?  Kristoffer Dahl Sakurai was a Principal Dancer for the Royal Danish Ballet from 2005-2011.  Being half Danish and half Japanese, Kristoffer broke racial barriers in the ballet.  By virtue of his very being, he has made fighting bias and racism a part of his daily life.  He is well researched on these issues -- we learn a bit of history and the wonderful change afoot.  Listen in to hear how he gracefully brings these different parts of life together.
