In a recent social media post, Kobe Bryant appeared to shame a young player on his youth basketball team for choosing to attend her dance recital over a game. This week we discuss this post, how expecting young athletes and artists to understand the importance of an art form or sport is unreasonable, and how host Barry Kerollis slowly educates students to make the art form of dance important in their lives.

Pas de Chát's host Barry Kerollis is an award-winning choreographer, instructor, and dancer with over 13 years experience in the dance world. His career includes directing Alaska Dance Theatre, dancing for Pacific Northwest Ballet, and traveling the country as a nationally-touring freelance artist. He also runs the popular blog, Life of a Freelance Dancer.
