DGC@Home: IN BALANCHINE’S CLASSROOM (Begins October 15)

 

IN BALANCHINE’S CLASSROOM takes us back to the glory years of George Balanchine’s New York City Ballet through the remembrances of his former dancers and their quest to fulfill the vision of a genius. Opening the door to his studio, Balanchine’s private laboratory, they reveal new facets of the groundbreaking choreographer: taskmaster, mad scientist, and spiritual teacher. Today, as his former dancers teach a new generation, questions arise: what was the secret of his teaching? Can it be replicated?

 

Filled with never before seen archival footage of Balanchine at work during rehearsals, classes, and in preparation for his most seminal works, along with interviews with many of his adored and adoring dancers and those who try to carry on his legacy today, this is Balanchine as you have never seen him, and a film for anyone who loves ballet and the creative process.

Critics:

“In mathematics, there was Newton; in psychology, there was Freud; and in American ballet, George Balanchine was a foundational genius.”

–  New York Times

 

“The intimacy, warmth and humor of the memories give the footage of him teaching the feeling of watching home movies from the adoring offspring of a cherished father.”

– Los Angeles Times

 

“Just fascinating….beautifully done. A feast for the eyes and ears. I couldn’t recommend it more highly. And if you’re not interested in dance, all the more reason to watch IN BALANCHINE’S CLASSROOM.”
