In the hands of a dance enthusiast like Lincoln Kirstein, the mundane
form of the program note became a short essay providing useful
information for the audience and beating a drum for the value of
classical dance and the intimacy achieved by the greatest
choreographers and their living or historical musical collaborators. This
delightful collection of notes from the School of American Ballet, from
the man who brought Balanchine to America, shows the young Kirstein
learning about ballet and passing this knowledge on to his readers, and
eventually espousing a New Deal faith in the power of American culture
to transform traditional modes into populist expressions with a native
resonance. A modest but irrepressible complement to Lincoln Kirstein's
other published work, in his inimitable voice.
