  5. Nutcracker, Stravinsky, Inspirational.

    I loved and adore the man. What I loved the most was Balanchine created plotless ballets, where the dancing upstaged glitz and storytelling. His work never featured a star, as he believed the performance should outshine the individual. I miss that these days.

  14. Agile, Graceful, Intricate.

    I always find this post intresting each week to see if others comment using words about what the person did, or if they use adjectives to use about what the person did for a living, or their personality.

    1. He had normal arms, the photo was done as a series by the photographer George Platt Lynes. I think he did something to the arm as part of the series, as Ballachine had no visible defects. But he had a terrible death with the rare, Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. I don't think he had affairs with the ballerinas either. If so, no one ever said, though he was married four times.

  17. I cannot say this in three words: we used to attend the Arizona Ballet and they always did one show of "All Balanchine"
