That's it, right now. She did do Theme and Variations w/Baryshnikov on Dance in America, but it was never released commercially. Try finding somebody with an old copy of it. Or you can try viewing it in New York at the Performing Arts Library or at a University Library near you. There have been rumors for years that T&V with Kirkland and Baryshnikov was one of the Dance in American episodes that would find its way into a release (the way Barshnikov's ABT Don Q has or ABT at the Met), but so far it has not.
