All Robbins

At the ballet today with New York City Ballet featuring three creative choreographies by Jerome Robbins. Feeling inspired and looking forward to my classes with Dorit Koppel this week!

Saw the magic of Robbins’ first choreography, Fancy Free, that eventually went onto Broadway as On the Town. (Wish Tiler Peck danced more than just the passers-by role though.) Sterling Hyltin was gorgeous and lovely and funny in the comedy, The Concert. Finally, Moves, a ballet in silence, was full of beautiful, powerful, and (as Miss Dorit would call it) juicy movements. My favorite has to be the Pas de Deux in Moves, with 11 dancers constantly weaving in and out of the many duets happening at all once on stage.
