Description

"An eloquent statement about the crucial role of art in bringing extra dimensions to our lives." —New York Times

"Ballet, in its characteristic unadorned, unsentimental manner, remains unique, and its portrait of ballet dancers at work has no parallel." —Washington Post

Ballet is a profile of the American Ballet Theatre, an important classical ballet company. The film presents the company in rehearsal in their New York studio and on tour in Athens and Copenhagen. Choreographers, ballet masters and mistresses are shown at work with principal dancers, soloists and the corps de ballet. Other sequences involve the administration and fundraising aspects of the company.
