George Balanchine is among the foremost choreaographers of the twentieth century. In a career spanning more than six decades and three continents, and with more than 400 dance works to his name, Balanchine is one of the major figures of modern art. He established, with Loncoln Kirstein, the School of American Ballet and the New York City Ballet, where he was Ballet Master and principal choreographer from 1948 until his death. Through his work with NYCB - as well as in Film, musicals and opera - Balanchine revolutionized classical ballet.

In this book, leading dancers, choreographers, company directors, critics and academics assess Balanchine's legacy and his relevance to dance, then and now.
