Listener favorite and former Chief Dance Critic at the New York Times, Alastair Macaulay returns to the podcast this week. We realize that we have never asked Alastair his origin story in dance, so he gives us background on how the love affair began. We take a few detours to discuss the late Jacques d’Amboise, ‘Dances at a Gathering’, Anthony Tudor, and stories of Balanchine Ballerinas.
Then, Alastair talks with us about the virtual return of City Center’s ‘Studio 5’ series that he hosts. This year, with ‘Studio 5 | Dancing Across Continents’ New York City Center brings us an intimate look at rare pairings of exceptional dance artists from around the world.
