Description

Streaming available starting December 17

Relive the glory years of groundbreaking choreographer George Balanchine’s New York City Ballet through five decades of historic dance footage and interviews. As the camera gazes upon bodies contorted into astonishing shapes, defying the boundaries of movement, the eponym “Einstein of Ballet” clicks into place. Balanchine’s studio was considered his private laboratory, a place in which his inventive choreorgraphical methods birthed new forms of physical expression. His instruction was known to employ strange metaphors: become a baby, an eagle, a soccer player; scrape the bowl with your foot! In Balanchine’s Classroom is a loving document that preserves the creative process and legacy of a singular genius.
