Curtain Up: The School of American Ballet Workshop Performances
July 12 at 2- 4 pm
The curtain rises on a new generation of ballet stars, at the School of American Ballet’s 50th Annual Workshop Performances. The great George Balanchine saw the School as a springboard for his dazzling innovations.
In 1946, George Balanchine created a performing company called Ballet Society focused on performing his choreography. In 1948, Ballet Society became the New York City Ballet and a permanent company in New York’s City Center. It moved to Lincoln Center in 1964. Ballanchine choreographed an astonishing number of masterpieces: like Firebird, a one-act Swan Lake, Agon, The Nutcracker, Stars and Stripes & Western Symphony.
This program features: Ballanchine’s Serenade, and excerpts from Swan Lake and Western Symphony, and the behind-the-scenes intensive training of ballet’s future stars preparing for their end-of- year performances.

Andrew Pessin [Professor of Philosophy at Connecticut College, with degrees from Yale and Columbia], is known for his appearances as “The Genius” on David Letterman. Author of many academic articles and books, Uncommon Sense: The Strangest Ideas from the Smartest Philosophers, was named an “Outstanding Academic Title of 2013” by Choice. He has spent 2 decades teaching at colleges and speaking to many non-philosophy oriented audiences; plenty of experience making philosophy entertaining, accessible, provocative and fun! His new novel, The Irrationalist, is based on the sad life and (possible) tragic murder of René Descartes. In his spare time Pessin composes and can occasionally be coaxed to perform amusing philosophy songs.
