Anatomy of a Dance

Indiana Woodward on Jerome Robbins' THE FOUR SEASONS

Though her entrée into this icy role had a slippery start, Indiana Woodward has nothing but fond memories of learning and leading the Winter allegory in Jerome Robbins' The Four Seasons.

Anatomy of a Dance

Dances at a Gathering with Harrison Ball and Indiana Woodward

Soloists Indiana Woodward and Harrison Ball discuss the humanity, community, and love found in Jerome Robbins’ masterwork Dances at a Gathering, and how the hour-long ballet isn’t just danced for the audience, but for each other.


Ms. Woodward is a recipient of the 2016 Lincoln Center Emerging Artist Award and 2016 Clive Barnes Foundation Award. In 2010, she won first place in the Bolshoi Ballet Academy Summer Intensive in New York City and was invited to perform at the Bolshoi Ballet Academy gala in Moscow.
