A review of Nancy Goldner's "Balanchine Variations" by George Jackson for danceviewtimes.


The wrting troughout the text is elegant. This is not a picture book, but there are black/white photos showing aspects of stretch and stamina, some of the points Goldner makes about the dancing and dancers. Quite a few of the pictures are by Costas. There is a color photo on the front cover of Balanchine demonstrating for virtuoso Mikhail Baryshnikov. On the back cover there is a too toothy, color photo by Nancy Crampton of author Nancy Goldner.  Whether you have or haven't a conversational companion when you go to see Balanchine ballets, this book will add good company to your adventure.
