ballet boom of NY

well, its been a month, & i've waited long enough for another ballet post, as i've mentioned i can't help but spend too much time just scouring the internets  for vintage ballet photos... i was pretty floored to find these incredible  photos of george balanchine & infamous muse suzanne farel ( i read her bio in my early teens, although i mostly just remember she would only eat one apple a day, to achieve the Balanchine ideal, maybe this isn't even correct, its just what i remember)...

photographer gjon mili shot these NYCB rehearsals
 for  production of "Don Quixote", 1965
