{Balanchine Rarities}

Carolina Ballet started the New Year with mixed-bill program titled “Balanchine Rarities.” The dancers and artistic staff put together the five pieces in three weeks. Some of the dancers had the privilege of working with Marina Eglevsky from the Balanchine Trust on the rare works choreographed on your father.
