a fascinating review of the dance troupe initially formed from russian refugees. their ballets from 1909 thru the 1940's were artistic fusions of scenery, costumes, sets, music, and dance! my personal favorites were those choreographed by leonide massine. this company was the first to introduce the symphony ballets. scores were commissoned from stravinsky, debussy, prokofiev, etc. sets were desinged by miro, picasso, dali, etc. the u.s. tours during wwii introduced ballet to major cities and small towns. the dancers are all very expressive, passionate, and individualistic. hopefully, these vibrant dancers will be able to pass on their genius to a new generation.

These older Russion broads are astonishing and bring to mind the expression "spitfire." They are thoroughly entertaining and the film clips are amazing.

This is a wonderful documentary of what happened with the Ballets Russes. I also have been to auditions with one of the dancers as my judge. My ballet teacher was taught by three of the dancers, so this movie means a little more to me. I suggest everyone watch this great movie!
