I am a lover of dance. There is no other stage where humans consistently display greater physical beauty and grace.
Sometimes, in sports, an athlete can achieve these heights, and this is what accounts, I believe, for the popularity of athletes like Michael Jordan, who was at once his sport’s greatest and most beautiful player.
Jerome Robbins is best known for choreographing West Side Story, and is considered “the most creative and revered choreographer the country has ever known.” This spring, the New York City Ballet (which he helped build with Lincoln Kirstein and George Balanchine) is celebrating his achievement by performing 33 of his ballets.
This is a great opportunity to have a true American experience. Don’t miss it.
