Absolutely outstanding- especially the gorgeous footwork. Could that possibly be Daniel Duell as her partner?

NYPL cat. entry for its silent Kirkland films (by Lucia Wayne and donated to the collection by Kirkland herself) has the following info for TARANTELLA, which is very likely the same footage as posted on youtube:

<<

Tarantella [excerpts] (ca. 6 min.) / recorded on February 15, 1974 ; choreography, George Balanchine ; costumes, Karinska ; danced by Gelsey Kirkland and Edward Villella. Lacks much of choreography for male dancer.

>>

so the answer is VILLELLA.
