In Balanchine’s Classroom

Balanchine as you have never seen him – archival footage, interviews with his dancers

Playing in-person at the Smith Rafael Film Center

In Balanchine’s Classroom takes us back to the glory years of George Balanchine’s New York City Ballet through the remembrances of his former dancers and their quest to fulfill the vision of a genius.

Opening the door to his studio, Balanchine’s private laboratory, they reveal new facets of the groundbreaking choreographer: taskmaster, mad scientist, and spiritual teacher.

Today, as his former dancers teach a new generation, questions arise: what was the secret of his teaching? Can it be replicated?

Filled with never before seen archival footage of Balanchine at work, along with interviews with many of his adored and adoring dancers and those carrying on his legacy today, this is Balanchine as you have never seen him.

This film will thrill anyone interested in the intensity of the master-disciple relationship and all who love dance, music, and the creative process.

Director: Connie Hochman
