Drawing upon their experience as principal dancers with George Balanchine's New York City Ballet, Suki Schorer and Merrill Ashley provide a detailed analysis and demonstration of ballet port de bras and épaulement, according to the principles of Balanchine technique.

Schorer, a longtime teacher at the School of American Ballet, sets exercises intended to help the dancer learn and practice correct form, and both she and Ashley recall images Balanchine used in class to elicit desired movement qualities from the dancers. Brief phrases from Balanchine's ballets Divertimento no. 15 and Symphony in C illustrate the choreographic application of Balanchine technique.

Ballerinas Merrill Ashley and Suki Schorer of George Balanchine's New York City Ballet present this instructional programme providing demonstrations of ballet techniques.
