"By confronting it so publicly, Whelan has confronted the limited strictures that govern the very perception of contemporary ballet: that it is necessarily ageist in its demands of the human body, that it excuses and glorifies a culture of dancing through pain, and that it relies on women’s bodies to be the tools of its expression, forcing its rigid ideas of beauty even at the expense of safety and comfort."

In addition to using virtual reality, the inmates take classes, learning new skills before trying them in VR.

"I really do not believe that President Trump believes the press is the enemy of the people. I believe he is softening the target the way battleships blast away before a boots-on-the-ground invasion. I don't like what Trump says about journalists, but I am more concerned about how his toxic statements about journalism are seeping into the mouths of despot leaders globally who really do hate the press. There, when journalists write something unpopular, they die."
