When you combine an athlete with an artist you get a dancer. Robert Hill was one of the world’s best before retiring at the age of 41. That was nearly 20 years ago. As he nears 60, Hill is not quite the athlete he was, but he’s every bit the artist and his example is about to inspire dancers worldwide. Hill, the artistic director of the famed Orlando Ballet, is staging a bold and unprecedented comeback. Growing Bolder steps into the rehearsal hall with Hill to get a sneak preview of this extraordinary and moving solo show.
Hill’s professional comeback has been temporally postponed due to COVID-19 but his message is one we didn’t want to wait share.
