"Balanchine the Teacher is a technical explanation of the stylistic approaches that George Balanchlne taught in New York City between 1940 and 1960, as recorded by two prominent dancers who studied with him at that time. This phenomenal resource replicates moments in the studio with the influential teacher, vividly and meticulously describing his instructions and corrections for twenty-four classes."--BOOK JACKET
