In Balanchine’s Classroom

SFDFF 2022 Festival - In Balanchine's Classroom

What was Balanchine’s secret? Reflections from his former dancers reveal new facets to the iconic choreographer’s process.

In Balanchine’s Classroom takes us back to the glory years of George Balanchine’s New York City Ballet through the remembrances of his former dancers and their quest to fulfill the vision of a genius. Opening the door to his studio, Balanchine’s private laboratory, they reveal new facets of the groundbreaking choreographer as a taskmaster, mad scientist, and spiritual teacher. Today, as his former dancers teach a new generation, questions arise: what was the secret of his teaching? Can it be replicated?
