Reviews

“Its portrait of ballet dancers at work has no parallel.”
– The Washington Post

“There is a tiny shock that comes from hearing the harsh thump of a toe shoe as it hits a rock-hard floor: how can a motion that looks so effortless and graceful sound like an ugly thud? ‘Ballet’ explores that paradox.”
– The New York Times
