Pointe Magazine: Live Stream Alert: Jacques d’Amboise, Arthur Mitchell and Edward Villella Discuss Balanchine

"On Monday, February 5, the National Dance Institute (NDI) is bringing together three of New York City Ballet's former star male dancers—Jacques d'Amboise, Edward Villella and Arthur Mitchell—in a one-night-only program titled Balanchine's Guys. These ballet veterans will discuss what it was like dancing for George Balanchine, and the impact that he had on their lives. All three men graced the stages of NYCB over a period stretching from the late 1940s through the 1980s, and served as inspiration for a number of the great choreographer's most famous works."

"Jacques d’Amboise, the great American ballet dancer, is in possession of laughing eyes and a crop of white hair, and he knows how to turn an interview into a show. Wandering through the art-lined hallways of the National Dance Institute in Harlem on a recent afternoon, he gave the best kind of performance — around every corner, there was a new surprise, a new story."
