Product Description:

Six of the New York City Ballet's top ballerinas reveal what it's like to dance for the best contemporary ballet choreographer, George Balanchine.

Description by Kultur:

This documentary celebrates six of Balanchine's ballerinas, Mary Ellen Moylan, Maria Tallchief, Melissa Hayden, Allegra Kent, Merrill Ashley and Darci Kistler, and shows them keeping alive the ballets and the inspiration they learned from him. For all of them, Balanchine was the single most powerful influence in their lives.

Plot Synopsis:

Six of Balanchine's most well-known ballerinas discuss what it was like working for the master. Each dancer reveals a different perspective on the experience -- from the mostly positive views of Darci Kistler to Allegra Kent's more painful memories.
The documentary includes rare performance footage of Balanchine's ballets. These include: "Serenade", "Agon", "The Four Temperaments", "Firebird", "Stars and Stripes" and "Scotch Symphony".
