Show Summary Details


This chapter focuses on the unique teachers chosen by Balanchine, who provided the technique on which he could build his company. Their classes were demanding, and although they were trained in the same tradition, their classes and strengths were very different from each other. Two special teachers were Anatole Oboukhoff and Pierre Vladimiroff.
