Summary:
Ethnic dancer Matteo explains that although born in Utica, N.Y., he has always been attracted to the exotic; studied anthropology and led a folk dance group in college; and began his professional dancing career with the Metropolitan Opera Ballet. He notes that one must be a "scholar, dancer, and a human being" to be a good ethnic dancer; stresses that the concentration is on the upper body rather than the legs (as in western dance); demonstrates and explains the importance of hand and facial gestures; and compares the Sanskrit terminology used in classical Indian dance to the French ballet vocabulary.
