Almanac: George Balanchine on Fred Astaire

INK BOTTLE“He is like Bach, who in his time had a great concentration of ability, essence, knowledge, a spread of music. Astaire has that same concentration of genius; there is so much of the dance in him that it has been distilled.”

George Balanchine (quoted in Horizon, Jan. 1961)
