BWW Reviews: New York City Ballet's 4th Annual SATURDAY AT THE BALLET WITH GEORGE
by Sondra Forsyth - Jan 28, 2014

Nearly 31 years have passed since George Balanchine, the prolific and pioneering 20th century choreographer, died on April 30th 1983. Yet the New York City Ballet, the company he co-founded with Lincoln Kirstein 80 years ago, continues to revere and remember him with equal parts fondness and awe. That legacy of love and respect for Mr. B was especially evident on January 25th 2014, the 4th annual celebration of "Saturday at the Ballet with George" in honor of his birthday. He was actually born on January 22nd 1904 but scheduling the event on a Saturday allows for a daylong series of workshops and performances, all of them affordable and some of them free. (more...)

BWW Reviews: NEW YORK CITY BALLET Offers Faithful and Flawless Renditions of Some of Mr. B's Greatest Hits
by Sondra Forsyth - Oct 21, 2013

I have always told my ballet students that because the art form is kept alive by each new generation of dancers, we must be as proficient in historical styles as we are in contemporary techniques. The important works of the past cannot be hung on museum walls the way the paintings of the masters are. Instead, we have to recreate what came before us or else the ballets will be lost. Years ago when I made that speech, I was referring to the centuries-old ballet classics. Yet on the afternoon of October 13th 2013, when the New York City Ballet offered a mixed bill of Balanchine's iconic 'black and white' ballets at the Koch Theater, I was reminded that now the dance gems of the 20th Century (more...)

BWW Reviews: NYCB Presents Four Balanchine Masterpieces
by Rhys Loggins - Oct 13, 2013

George Balanchine is commonly referred to as the father of neoclassical ballet. His vision allowed him to see another side of the art, and his works ushered in a paradigm shift that would affect it forever. By stripping his ballets of their plots and trappings, Balanchine exposed the raw beauty of movement and made dances that were about dance and little else. (more...)
