Balanchine Essays: Arabesque


Toward the latter part of his life, George Balanchine talked about creating a "dictionary" of his technique, a visual reference for students of the ballet. The Foundation has helped to fulfill his wish by producing The Balanchine Essays. The Essays provide over nine hours of visual discussion of Balanchine's ideas on technique that are not only educational but also protect the high standards Balanchine himself set for his dancers.
