A Perfect Balance

Air date: Sat., March 21, 8:00 pm


When the curtain rises on a ballet performance, audience members may marvel at the artistry and skill of the choreography, but often overlook the dedicated dancers responsible for bringing the work to life. This program goes backstage for a revealing look inside the world of ballet. Through interviews, some of the world’s greatest dancers describe the commitment and discipline required for a life in professional ballet. Their stories provide a rarely seen glimpse into the lives of some of today’s most gifted and accomplished dancers and shed light on the creative process. The film captures principal dancers from the American Ballet Theatre, Berlin Ballet, Joffrey Ballet, New York City Ballet and San Francisco Ballet rehearsing and performing their signature works in a wide array of styles – classical pas de deux, contemporary, high-energy, lyrical and romantic.
