Overview


            When still a young dancer in the New York City Ballet, Suki Schorer was chosen by George Balanchine to lecture, demonstrate, and teach—he recognized in her that rare dancer who not only performs superbly but can also successfully pass along what she knows to others. In Suki Schorer on Balanchine Technique, she commits to paper the fruit of her twenty-four-year collaboration with Balanchine in a close examination of his technique for teachers, scholars, and advanced students of the ballet.
            Schorer discusses the crucial work at the barre as well as center work, port de bras, pointework, jumps, partnering, and more. Her recollections of her own tutelage under Balanchine and her brilliant use of scores of his remarks about dancing and dancers lend both authority and intimacy to this extraordinary analysis of Balanchine’s legacy to the future of dance.
            Abundantly illustrated throughout with instructional photographs featuring members of the New York City Ballet, this book will serve as an indispensable testament to Balanchine’s ideas on technique and performance.

Editorial Reviews

Dance Magazine
"Meticulous. Schorer covers barrework, port de bras, pointework, partnering, and jumps in step by step detail that dance teachers will find invaluable."
Dancer
"More than a dry pedagogical piece on ballet technique. Balletomanes and aspiring dancers will enjoy this as much as teachers."
