Due to Covid-19, the eleven dancers of MB’s 2020 graduating class did not dance their final Spring Concert here in the Phyllis Thelen Theater, nor celebrate accomplishments with family and friends at 100 Elm Street as have decades of grads before them. More significantly, they missed being able to dance together in the way that only dancers will understand as a shared goodbye to one another and an homage to their MB experience. In response to this loss, faculty member Casey Thorne worked individually with these dancers to create a performance video true to constraints and opportunities of this time. Each dancer responded to the question: What would I tell my 10-year old dancer self if I could?
In partnership with The Balanchine Trust, Artistic Director Cynthia Lucas and Repetiteur Sandra Jennings have collaborated to bring the legendary work of George Balanchine to the MB Community. More words to come……cz
