Center Stage: “All Balanchine”

Jillian Barrell and Nayon Iovino in Balanchine's Rubies

Take a peek behind the curtain as Ballet Arizona dancers share the physical, emotional and mental strength Balanchine performances demand and what it’s like to learn from one of George Balanchine’s protégés, Ib Andersen.

Behind the Scenes with Ib Andersen: “All Balanchine”

George Balanchine’s Western Symphony ballet performed by Ballet Arizona featuring Nayon Iovino

I continue to do a Balanchine program each year because, in my opinion, he is the number one choreographer that we have ever seen in ballet. There is no one like him; no one is as diverse as him and I don’t think there ever will be.
