Live and taped performances alike have a way of touching us as people and artists. Whether it’s the breathtaking passion of the dancers, the catchy beat of the music or the flawless costumes, these well-choreographed routines are unforgettable to us and often serve as inspiration. Some of our Relationship Managers took on the challenge of identifying their most favorite pieces of choreography. Did anyone name your favorite, or can you think of one that should’ve made the list? Let us know in the comments!
My favorite famous piece of choreography is Danny Kaye and Vera Ellen performing “The best things happen when you're dancing” from White Christmas. Always puts a smile on my face!
There are too many to choose from! For ballet, Rudolph Nureyev and Margot Fonteyn in the balcony scene from Romeo and Juliet is a well-choreographed classic, but I also love the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre’s Sinner Man.
As an audience member of Brittany Spears’s Dream Within a Dream Tour, I couldn’t believe how awesome her dancers were. The tour was directed and choreographed by Wade Robson and Brook Lipton was one of her back up dancers at the time.
My ballet go-tos have to be Act 3 Kitri Variation from Don Quixote and Little Swan from Swan Lake choreography by Nureyev; but I do love Martha Graham Company’s Errand into the Maze in the modern choreography realm.
