P.S. In retrospect, I realize I should have added a to my last sentence, the one about Bournonville.

i have no way of checking the accuracy of the recollection or just what he, Gorey, recalled during the 1970s as what happened earlier, presumably around 1960.
my copy of Goldner's BALANCHINE VARIATIONS is not to hand, but if mem. serves, she addresses the ballet in one of her essays.
And Tallchief comments on the "throw" in the video Dancing for Mr B". She speaks of how nervous the toss made her, "there were four boys throwing me and only one boy catching me"....
Sean Lavery, speaking before the panel with 3 young dancers (as discussed in the NYCB January 22nd thread), talked about having to learn the ballet in one day (after some earlier coaching with Jacques d"Amboise), and Balanchine being very casual about the catch.... then going off to make his birthday dinner. So it's not just the "Sylph" who gets nervous.

One of my most memorable "Sylphs" was Nichol Hlinka's farewell performance -- soft, light, and not quite tragic.
