NYCB Vol. 7 No. 19 - Agon

Diana Adams on the original rehearsals for Agon: "Balanchine rehearsals whip you into a frenzy. Keeping up with him was so difficult. I just tried to get the next step and fit them all together [...] It was very challenging, and I liked that. It gave me less of an opportunity to brood on whether I was going to be good in something or not. I was involved with just doing it. That's how he works".
