New York City Ballet – Square Dance, Harlequinade – New York

If Harlequinade is somewhat less than the sum of its parts, Square Dance (1957), which preceded it on the program, never fails to lift the heart.

Susan Stroman/Kennedy Center – Little Dancer – Washington

This is a musical that will certainly delight all dance lovers: the theme of ballet permeates the show from start to finish.

New York City Ballet – Tchaikovsky & Balanchine, Stravinsky & Balanchine bills – New York

One cannot help but be amazed by the number of exceptional women in the company, and by how differently they approach the steps, the music and the temperament of each ballet.

New York City Ballet – Fall Gala – New York

It’s as pointless to complain about ballet galas as it is to grumble about the weather. They serve a purpose…

Two young NYCB choreographers have been out talking and showing what they do: Justin Peck at the Guggenheim and Troy Schumacher at the 92nd Street Y. Marina Harss on why they are so worth tracking…

Twyla Tharp Countrified – working with Carolina Chocolate Drops, Tiler Peck and Robert Fairchild

Twyla Tharp loves Americana. She’s made dances to Shaker hymns and to the crooning voice of Frank Sinatra, and whipped up steps to the super-sophisticated piano tunes of Willie “The Lion” Smith. So it’s no surprise…

New York City Ballet – Concerto Barocco, Kammermusik No. 2, Who Cares? – New York

There is perhaps no better way to start off a season at New York City Ballet than with a performance of Balanchine’s Concerto Barocco.

The Nutcracker – from New York City Ballet, American Ballet Theatre and Gelsey Kirkland Ballet – New York

So far this season I’ve seen three “traditional” Nutcrackers: Ratmansky’s version for American Ballet Theatre, Gelsey Kirkland’s, and the familiar and much-loved 1954 staging by George Balanchine for New York City Ballet. All three have their charms…

New York City Ballet – Spectral Evidence, Soirée Musicale, Namouna – New York

New York City Ballet – Tradition and Innovation & Just for Fun bills – New York

Jeu de Cartes, by Peter Martins, is jaunty and busy, a cross between the pas de deux in Balanchine’s Rubies, the trios in Danses Concertantes, and the non-stop action of Martins’ Fearful Symmetries….

New York City Ballet – Fall Gala – New York

Amid all the fuss about the costumes, the choreogaphy paled… What a joy, then, to see a section of Western Symphony, with those marvelous frou-frou tutus by Karinska and that euphoric outpouring of Balanchine’s’ crisp, witty steps.
