Mr. Balanchine wanted me to be myself. He didn’t want me to look like anyone else. I love teaching our company dancers the Balanchine ballets. I try to give them what was passed down to me and what I learned from him. They dance it so beautifully. It also keeps me close to Mr. Balanchine. He’s with me every single day.  (Ballets Quotes) I live in the Dark Ages, the 17th century. Actually, I would have loved to be in Paris in the early 20th century when the Ballets Russes were there and Chanel was designing.  (Ballets Quotes) There’s the tradition of the 19th-century ballets, and the 20th century has had a difficult time with that tradition. And it’s had a difficult time with many components of the Romantic imagination because of modernism.  (Ballets Quotes) Nothing is harder to create than brilliant comic ballets, except maybe brilliant full-evening comic ballets.  (Ballets Quotes) Tolstoy may be right about happy and unhappy families, but in ballet, it works the opposite way: All good ballets are different from each other and all bad ones are alike, at least in one crucial respect - they’re all empty.  (Ballets Quotes) A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ is one of George Balanchine’s greatest creations - and one of the greatest of all story ballets.  (Ballets Quotes) The best gift I was ever given was the arts. My mum gave me those on a silver platter. Growing up, her and my grandmother would take me to ballets, classical concerts, even smoky jazz clubs I wasn’t supposed to be in!  (Ballets Quotes) The Sleeping Beauty’ is the greatest, most challenging and most vulnerable of classical ballets. Everything can go wrong with it, and all too often, everything does.  (Ballets Quotes) Of course, from one point of view the unhappy events of our own century might be regarded as, say, demonstration ballets on the theme ‘Hydrocarbon Synthesis’ with strong audience participation.  (Ballets Quotes) I like dramatic ballets, particularly if they’re ballets in which I have a chance to go from one extreme of style or characterization to another.  (Ballets Quotes) Not only are most of our citizens fathomlessly ignorant of the glories of American literature, a fast-growing percentage of our students are no longer taught much about any works of American art, be they novels, paintings, symphonies or ballets.  (Ballets Quotes) I like new ballets because they’re totally new. As you get older, new experiences are harder and harder to come by, so it’s pretty great to have a new experience  (Ballets Quotes) The best gift I was ever given was the arts. My mum gave me those on a silver platter. Growing up, her and my grandmother would take me to ballets, classical concerts, even smoky jazz clubs I wasn’t supposed to be in!  (Ballets Quotes) I was not influenced by concerts as a child, but I was very strongly influenced by the ballets I saw  (Ballets Quotes) In the world of classical ballet there are only a handful of story ballets, so getting a new one is cause for excitement  (Ballets Quotes) I have been very lucky to work in so many new ballets, but that is what a dancer’s work is  (Ballets Quotes) In my ballets, woman is first. Men are consorts. God made men to sing the praises of women. They are not equal to men: They are better  (Ballets Quotes) I like new ballets because they’re totally new. As you get older, new experiences are harder and harder to come by, so it’s pretty great to have a new experience.  (Ballets Quotes) PRINT FREE GIANT POSTERS
