After the Curtain Falls: Talking to Suzanne Farrell, Artist and Muse

Teaching extends my dance life. I feel as if I’m still the dancer I was. I show my dancers a move, and I think my leg’s way up there where it used to go. Then I look in the mirror!

Class is probably where Mr. B. learned about me. You have to be there, in the laboratory, where everybody is vulnerable. I’m sure Balanchine must often have looked at me and thought: “What does she think she’s doing? That’s not what I would have done.” But then he looked at what I did do. And he worked with that. I see that all the time in my dancers: They do things in class or rehearsal that I didn’t think I’d asked for — and that’s what I work with.
