NYCB Dancers at Williams College

Recommended Posts

An article in iBerkshires.com announces that a group of dancers will perform "Robert Schumann's Davidsbundlertanzes" at Williams College.

If you read the whole article, the most interesting thing, to me, is that there is a documentary on Karin van Aroldingen in the works.

Here is the link, and here is a portion of the article:

Dancers from the New York City Ballet at The ’62 Center

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. - The ’62 Center for Theatre and Dance presents principal dancers from the New York City Ballet in a special performance of George Balanchine’s Davidsbündlertänze. As in the original production, the work is performed with a solo pianist. The evening includes a discussion of Schumann’s music by Marjorie Hirsch, Professor of Music, and an excerpt from a documentary on Karin von Aroldingen, an original cast member and interpreter of Balanchine choreography.

I wanted to post a link to an article about ANOTHER former NYCBallet dancer, about whom a documentary has been made. In this case it's Steven Caras.

Here's the link and here is a quote:

“STEVEN CARAS: SEE THEM DANCE” Completes NYC Filming by Huntington's Emmy Winning Deborah Novak

By Huntingtonnews.net Staff

New York (HNN) - STEVEN CARAS: SEE THEM DANCE, a new public television documentary presented by Arizona PBS, has wrapped up filming in New York.

The program concerns the life and work of Mr. Caras, a former New York City Ballet dancer, who transformed his career to become one of the most famous dance photographers of all time.

Directed by Emmy Award winner, Deborah Novak, Steve’s story begins in the 1950s, when men did not readily pursue a career in ballet, as they do today. In spite of the bullying he endured, he persevered and received full scholarships to the Joffrey School and the School of American Ballet in New York City. At 18, with only three years of training, he was personally invited by George Balanchine to join the New York City Ballet.

Without question, Balanchine would change his life.
