Marjorie Thompson had the good fortune to be in the New York City Ballet during the years that Mr. Balanchine taught the daily morning class. This class represents some of her memories of how Mr. B wanted his dancers to execute their class work.
Marjorie’s class contains a complete barre and center, along with comprehensive explanations of the steps and the reasoning behind the style in which they are executed.
