A film for anyone who loves ballet and the creative process, In Balanchine's Classroom takes us back to the glory years of Balanchine's New York City Ballet through the recollections 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? Featuring never-before-seen archival footage of Balanchine at work during rehearsals, classes, and in preparation for his most seminal works, plus interviews with his most adored and adoring dancers and those who try to carry on his legacy today, this is Balanchine as you have never seen him.—Various sources
