Part of what has made Etudes such an enduring audience favorite is the irresistible thrill of seeing dancers moving at full velocity. “It’s brilliantly constructed,” says stager Johnny Eliasen. “People everywhere love it.” Onstage through 2/24 as part of In Space & Time.

Etudes takes dancers’ daily ritual—ballet class—and elevates and transforms it for the stage. These movements, even the smallest pliés and tendus, are the building blocks from which classical ballets are constructed. Études illuminates these classroom exercises, then illustrates how these simple steps become art. Onstage as part of In Space & Time through 2/24.
