That's an excellent suggestion.
You probably missed my "Added:" but doesn't Peter Boal do this sort of demonstration ?
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 find Nancy Goldner's essays on 20 Balanchine ballets useful in placing his work, and how it differed.
Goldner, Nancy. (2008) Balanchine Variations. Gainesville: University Press of Florida.

Sorry, I missed the reply to my comment.
Marcmomus is onto a good source -- both of Goldner's books (Balanchine Variations and More Balanchine Variations) talk about the specificity of the work. The video Essay series I mentioned originally also does some compare/contrast of fundamental material (technique level distinctions).
