Check out the Suki Schorer book on Balanchine technique.

That's an excellent suggestion.

You probably missed my "Added:" but doesn't Peter Boal do this sort of demonstration ?

 

Thanks, Imspear.

 

Added: And perhaps simple enough for a person with minimal ballet vocabulary, like myself, to understand.

Boal did a lecture-demonstration with Francia Russell illustrating some of the differences between early and later Balanchine (that is, differences between their own periods in the company) but I don't know that it's available as a whole online anywhere.  I thought you were looking for something comparing Balanchine's neo-classical developments with his classical heritage.

I am.
