NYCB Vol. 4 No. 23 - Episodes

“He had me do Episodes once, the second section. It’s a pas de deux, and the ballerina’s entrance is like on a tightrope. Balanchine had me imagining that I was walking it, Balanchine, really doing it. I did that millions of times until I got it right. There was another step that was like smoking a cigarette. There were always these little things that you would think about as you did them.”
