DVD/Videos: Footage of Balanchine Dancing

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of any available footage where Balanchine is actually dancing? I've been reading the bios of several of his prima ballerinas, and they all say that he exhibited an amazing quality of movement, even when he was just demonstrating a step for them. I would very much like to see this for myself. If anyone knows of any footage where Balanchine is performing, please reply to this post!


Thank you! :)

http://www.youtube.c...1&v=QAWdQyPjKWY I did a google search and eventually I found this snippet on youtube. I doubt if you'll find much more, but possibly in some of the documentaries that have been made about him, you might come across one or two more snippets. Don't forget that his dancing hey day was in the 1920's! He started choreographing in his teens and had to give up dancing quite early on after a serious knee injury.
