Screening at Theatre Three 412 Main Street, Port Jefferson, New York, 11777 Guest Speaker: Connie Hochman, Director; Q&A moderated by Tom Needham, Host of The Sounds of Film at WUSB radio 

Directed by Connie Hochman  IN BALANCHINE’S CLASSROOM takes us back to the glory years of Balanchine’s New York City Ballet through the remembrances of his former dancers and their quest to fulfill the vision of a genius. Opening the door to his studio, Balanchine’s private laboratory, they reveal new facets of the groundbreaking choreographer: taskmaster, mad scientist, and spiritual teacher. Today, as his former dancers teach a new generation, questions arise: what was the secret of his teaching? Can it be replicated?

Filled with never-before-seen archival footage of Balanchine at work, along with interviews with many of his adored and adoring dancers and those carrying on his legacy today, this is Balanchine as you have never seen him. This film will thrill anyone interested in the intensity of the master-disciple relationship and all who love dance, music, and the creative process. Running Time: 89 minutes

In addition to our live presentations at Theatre Three, we have added a VIRTUAL presentation of the series as well. These screenings will take place on Tuesdays after the live screenings on Mondays.
