Today we have something special for 4dancers readers–an interview with Balanchine ballerina Patricia Neary. This comes to us courtesy of Dance Channel TV – a wonderful resource for those who love dance.
Dance Channel TV interviewed her with the help of Lewis Segal. Ms. Neary is the dancer for whom Balanchine created “Rubies”. In part one of a two part series, Pat recalls her experience working with Mr. B in the 1960s:
