Abstract:

"Felia Doubrovska was ... a student at the Imperial Ballet School and then ... a ballerina with some of the most famous ballet companies in history. After her retirement from the stage she devoted nearly the same span of time to her career as a teacher at the School of American Ballet. It was during this period that she made her great contribution to preserving the continuity of the tradition of classical and neoclassical ballet, as she participated in the training of almost all of the women in the New York City Ballet, the instruments of George Balanchine's choreographic genius. This film provides an affectionate memorial designed to introduce this elegant personality to those members of the audience who never knew her."--Www.brooksdancefilms.com.
