CALVIN ROYAL III WITH IB ANDERSEN
Past event

American Ballet Theatre Principal Dancer Calvin Royal III, who recently appeared in the 2020 Fall for Dance Festival, made his debut in the title role of George Balanchine’s Apollo in 2019. Artistic Director of Ballet Arizona Ib Andersen, a star of the Royal Danish Ballet and New York City Ballet, was the last male dancer to work directly with Balanchine on Apollo. Together they explore the classic role. This is also the first time Royal has worked with a coach who studied it with Balanchine himself.

One of the great dancers of today, Bijayini Satpathy is also an influential teacher and guru who has appeared twice in Fall for Dance.
