the photographer is Paul Kolnick, so perhaps he is also the photographer of the photo you seek.
i suppose a search for Kolnick's work on the internet might lead to a more conclusive answer and/or to a way to acquire a copy of the photo.

This isn't the photo rg is describing, since Farrell is point en arabesque, both hands holding the hands of a partner. However, this second photo is obviously from the same shoot. In the photo described by Anthony_NYC, Balanchine is shown as dancer, coach, dance master .
Balanchine in this other Kolnik shot always makes me think of Leopold Stowkowski, shot in silhouette and from the back, in Disney's Fantasia. It is an untypical image of Balanchine, but one which captures his qualities as, literally, a giant ... and a sorcerer.. That's why I love it.

Portrait of Mr. B (p. 124) does have a Caras photo of Balanchine rehearsing Karen von Aroldingen (her upper body swooning backward in cambre) and Adams Luders in Hungarian Gypsy Airs. As in the Kolnik, Caras observes Balanchine from behind -- arms outstretched, body full of motion. Unlike the Kolnik, the lighting allows us to see the texture and shadowing of Balanchine's suit and trousers, and his silver hair. It's a fine shot.

For me as well. I have a copy on the wall of my study. It was a gift (not from Kolnik).
