LivingWithAsthma.net continues our feature Asthma SuperStars by sitting down to talk to dancer Rebecca Johnson of Ballet Austin about her journey with both asthma and ballet, choosing dance as a profession (and the doubts along the way), the trial and error involved in finding the right asthma treatment for her and leading a life in ballet while managing asthma.

Rebecca Johnson has been a member of Ballet Austin since 2005.  At Ballet Austin, Rebecca has danced in everything from the classics like Swan Lake, The Nutcracker, and Cinderella, as well as newer works by George Balanchine, Twyla Tharp, and Stephen Mills.

From their bustling, urban headquarters at the Butler Dance Education Center and Community School in downtown Austin, Ballet Austin and artistic director Stephen Mills actively engage the community, dancers, and audiences alike. With a rich history spanning 57 years, a commitment to education as well as lifelong fitness, and acclaimed productions in Austin and across the nation, the organization is equally committed to the international craft of dance as it is to the community it serves. The New York Times proclaims Ballet Austin "a company with big ambitions" originating work that is "absorbing."
