The weather was warm. I wore black & white pencil skirt with a scrunched pleat short jack & high heels. Some wore full length dresses - men in sports coats. Ballet is meant for elegant dressing - NOT shorts, jeans or flipflops .

“Astonishing…classical ballet with an entirely new dimension.” —Chicago Sun Times


One of today’s most original and adventurous choreographers, Boris Eifman has intrigued audiences around the world with his imaginative story ballets, taking dance to its highest level of expressiveness. A product of the grand Russian ballet tradition, Eifman uses his Russian heritage and classical training to create compellingly original dramas. Eifman’s signature approach utilizes brilliant dance to reach the emotional heart of a story, finding new insights and nuances along the way. He not only creates thrillingly theatrical tales, but also helps develop a new type of dance artist, dancer/actors who use the solid foundation of impeccable classical ballet training as a launching pad for innovative, modern choreography and bold storytelling.
