Members of the from New York City Ballet return to Williams—first performing at the ’62 Center in 2005 to help kick off its inaugural season—with a mixed program of repertory that will reflect the evolving nature of the Pas de Deux over the past two centuries by presenting classics such as August Bournonville’s La Sylphide and Lev Ivanov’s Swan Lake alongside more modern excerpts of works by George Balanchine, Jerome Robbins, Justin Peck, and Christopher Wheeldon.
New York City Ballet, under the direction of Peter Martins, is one of the foremost dance companies in the world, with a roster of spectacular dancers and an unparalleled repertory. The Company was founded in 1948 by George Balanchine and Lincoln Kirstein, and it quickly became world-renowned for its athletic and contemporary style. Jerome Robbins joined NYCB the following year and, with Balanchine, helped to build the astounding repertory and firmly establish the Company in New York.
