She's a second soloist, not a star. But Heather Myers has been given the rare chance to choreograph a major piece for her fellow Boston Ballet dancers.
The dancers in her new work, "Gone Again," are more than tools for her artistic vision. They're her colleagues, her "family," as she called them.
The process of creating the piece, which Boston Ballet commissioned for this world premiere, is not just professional. It's personal.
