Abstract:

Ballerinas Maria Tallchief, Mary Ellen Moylan, Melissa Hayden, Allegra Kent, Merrill Ashley, and Darci Kistler reminisce about their experiences dancing for George Balanchine. Their combined careers provide a panorama of his work as choreographer and teacher from the 1940s until his death in 1983, and include ballets created for the School of American Ballet, Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo, Ballet Society, and the New York City Ballet. Of special interest are their discussions of the roles he created for them, and their insights into his creative process. Footage from kinescopes and films provide glimpses of the six in his ballets. They are also seen actively carrying on his work, whether by teaching, coaching, or continuing to perform.
