Clear, Afternoon of a Faun, and Fancy Free

The American Ballet Theatre at the New York City Center on Saturday, October 28.

When selecting which dance repertory programs to see, I usually pick based on strong interest in one particular piece. When I actually attend, however, that special piece is rarely my favorite and occasionally a disappointment. It’s a fun reminder that although I’ve studied music and film and theater, dance is still new to me, and I really don’t know what I’m doing when I make my choices.
