An Evening with Jennifer Homans
Jennifer Homans is dance critic for The New Yorker and author of a new book, Mr. B: George Balanchine’s 20th Century, as well as the best-selling Apollo’s Angels: A History of Ballet. Trained at Balanchine’s School of American Ballet, Homans danced professionally with the Pacific Northwest Ballet. She writes with experience about Balanchine as a choreographer and his dancers. And as a recipient of a PhD in modern European history, she locates Balanchine more fully in the history and culture of 20th century Europe and America than his previous biographers. She is Founding Director of the Center for Ballet and the Arts at New York University. She will discuss Mr. B with Diane Solway, author of Nureyev: His Life.
