The Shapes of American Ballet: Teachers and Training before Balanchine

BY JESSICA ZELLER, ASSISTANT PROFESSOR OF DANCE

OXFORD UNIVERSITY PRESS, 2016

While most consider George Balanchine to be the sole creator of American ballet, numerous European and Russian émigrés played critical and largely unacknowledged roles in its development. Zeller’s book provides a new perspective on American ballet in the period before Balanchine’s arrival in the United States. Using New York City as a backdrop, the author explores rare archival documents to spotlight several significant European and Russian teachers. — Makenzie Stallo
