NYCB Vol. 6 No. 2 - Valse Fantaisie

"The Valse is so lovely. You feel beautiful."—Suki Schorer in Repertory in Review: 40 Years of the New York City Ballet

The ballet Valse Fantaisie is the second movement of a larger work Balanchine choreographed in 1967, titled Glinkaiana. Of the original 4 movements, the Valse was, according to Clive Barnes, "the choreographic highlight of the work. Here, to a waltz of gossamer beauty, dancers whirl and sway in a misty yet still buoyant abandon."
