America Dances

La Source • George Balanchine
With evocative music by Léo Delibes, “La source is one of life’s small pleasures...the choreography looks the way many dancegoers think nineteenth-century ballets must have looked…with the choreography emphasizing steps for women…bewitching women.” The New York Times

Diversion of Angels • Martha Graham 
Martha Graham described her lyric creation as the three aspects of love— mature love in perfect balance, erotic love, and adolescent love. The music’s by Norman Dello Joio and the dance is “full of fan kicks and elegant skips… it is the adoration of all things feminine.” Washington Post

Sandpaper Ballet • Mark Morris 
“A light and delightfully loopy sprawl of dance” is how the San Francisco Chronicle describes Morris’s wonderful work that’s set to the music of Leroy Anderson. (“Syncopated Clock,” “Sleigh Ride,” “Trumpeter’s Lullaby,” and more.) “Morris is the most influential choreographer alive.” The New York Times
