This Tuesday, July 17, New York City Ballet begins its 52nd summer residency in Saratoga Springs, NY. This annual tradition sees the company's world-class dancers bringing their signature works by George Balanchine, Jerome Robbins, Justin Peck, and others to the outdoor Saratoga Performing Arts Center (or SPAC for short).
To drum up excitement for the tour, corps de ballet members Peter Walker and Emily Kikta (who graduates from Fordham University later this year with a degree in film) are once again spearheading the NYCBxSPAC series, in which we lucky bunheads are being gifted a brand-new video every day this week leading up to the Saratoga performances.
Follow a stunning small group of NYCB dancers as they grace cinematic locations in and around Saratoga Springs with Kikta's athletic yet elegant choreography. Our current favorite? This oh-so-cosmopolitan use of the Adelphi Hotel's glamorously retro interiors:
