Alexandre Proia is the artistic director of the Georgia Ballet. However, his path to a life in dance was by no means always certain, as Alexandre’s earliest years were marked by a medical condition that made physical movement difficult.

At StoryCorps, he told his friend and fellow dancer Jillian Mitchell about his childhood and the events that made dance a possibility.

This story was recorded in partnership with the Atlanta History Center, which hosts Atlanta’s StoryCorps booth.
