‘Double Husky’ John Lam is retiring from Boston Ballet. He’ll be busier than ever

The 20-year ballet veteran has balanced fatherhood, college and the grueling demands of life as an elite professional dancer. Northeastern’s College of Professional Studies has helped him do it — and prepare for his next chapter.

“It’s great to reflect on the 20 years that I’ve had here, but I’m really excited for the future. I’m still going to be dancing.”

He said in an interview a few days before “Spring Experience’s” opening night.
