Dancing for Mr B - Six Balanchine Ballerinas.

Maria Tallchief, Mary Ellen Moylan, Melissa Hayden, Allegra Kent, Merrill Ashley and Darci Kistler discuss their time spent dancing for George Balanchine.

Even after the death of the great choreographer and ballet master George Balanchine, the legacy of his beautiful ballets and teh striving for perfection he instilled in his dancers lives on.
This documentary celebrates six of Balanchine's ballerinas: Mary Ellen Moylan, Maria Tallchief, Melissa Hayden, Allegra Kent, Merrill Ashley and Darci Kistler, and shows them keeping alive the ballets and the inspiration they learned from him. For all of them, Balanchine was the single most powerful influence in their lives.
These ballerinas, along with Suzanne Farrell, Tanaquil le Clerq and Diana Adams, are seen in a feast of excerpts of Balanchine ballets including: Concerto Barocco, Serenade, Symphony in C, Firebird, Stars and Stripes, ballo Della Regina, Chaconne, Agon, Four Temperaments, Apollo and Scotch Symphony
