Stick around for the lovely smile at the end --and the curtsy. Kermit the Frog is suitably impressed.
Given the relative scarcity of video of Farrell dancing her NYCB rep, we should be grateful that George Balanchine did not choreograph "20 Grands Battements." The Balanchine Trust would ban it from You Tube. On the other hand, didn't Balanchine do something like this in Stars and Stripes? Please, don't tell the Trust.

And, while we are at it ...
On that one, I admit that I thought this might involve counting to 32, though fouettes were not an NYCB strength in those days. Love the idea of the Count ... counting.
