And one more ... 

The Orange County Register: What was the biggest challenge of leaving New York for Copenhagen?
Nikolaj Hübbe: To say farewell to dancing and City Ballet was not too hard. I think the hard part was moving from New York to Denmark and going from being a dancer to a director. I didn't miss the dancing, it was the new job. And the culture shock. I was 17 years in New York. I knew the language but I was self-conscious about speaking Danish. I didn't know the country and the ins and outs anymore
