When someone is being interviewed, they always put their best face forward. "Real Talk" is designed to help young dancers and professionals by providing them with the whole truth about the problems faced by artists...on stage and off.

Lydia Bustinduy is an experienced dancer with Nederlands Dans Theater and a mother of three.

How do you warm up for class?

Before a ballet class or any other class, I usually do not warm up. Apart from other things, I take the class as a preparation for rehearsals.

Do you have a special "outside of dance" treatment for your body?

I like to exercise whenever possible. Pilates exercises are the best way for me. Thanks to the caring guidance of Leila Kester, my Pilates teacher, I was able to be back on stage quickly and steadily after pregnancy and injury. Even today, I continue to work with her to improve my physical condition.
