NYCB Vol. 11 No. 18 - Other Dances

On Robbins’ Other Dances: “The ballet needs a kind of innate eloquence to make its understated, folk-accented solos and partnering shine. Easy and authoritative, Miss Nichols and Mr. Lavery gave it that, playfully illuminating its little passions and jokes. Miss Nichols’s solos had a knowing rapture to them, and the music seemed to ripple through her body. Mr. Lavery sailed through difficult lifts toward the end that other dancers have sometimes not even tried.”—Jennifer Dunning, New York Times, June 17, 1983
