Two Dance Companies Move Beyond Balanchine

Twenty seconds into Elena Kunikova’s Divertimento at last Saturday’s Dance Theatre of Harlem matinee at the City Center, I whispered to my companion, “This isn’t a company ballet, it’s a school performance.” It would have been more accurate to say, “It’s a teaching tool.” Kunikova has been a superb coach and pedagogue in America for many years, drawing on her experience first as a student and then as a leading dancer at the Kirov (now Maryinsky); she’s been particularly successful staging 19th-century Russian classics for the Trocks, somehow marrying her immaculate renditions of obscure ballets to the company’s parodic predilection. 708 more words
