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.
