........MUSIC........
It has been said the greatest legacy of Rebekah Harkness, the famous patron of Dance, is the way her dancers were trained. The renowned teacher David Howard was Director of the Harkness Ballet School on the East Side of Manhattan during the mid-seventies and the accomplished pianist, John Childs was a member of the staff. They forged a unique professional relationship amidst the exciting and creative environment of this legendary school founded by Rebekah Harkness. Craig Unger in Blue Blood, his biography of Rebekah Harkness, talks in terms of The Harkness School of Ballet at Harkness House being a serious force in the New York Dance world and that an opportunity to study there was coveted by young dancers. “One reason was that David Howard, a highly regarded dance teacher, was its director. He was so well thought of that even after the folding of Rebekah’s last troupe, some of the best dancers in the world (among them Gelsey Kirkland, Natalia Makarova, and Peter Martins) took his classes.” David and John remember those times in this excellent collection of music for Ballet Class, including one composition by Rebekah Harkness, and pay tribute to those amazing years. DVD also available. This DVD is a non-chaptered video stream in a clear unmarked case which shows the label of the disc. What's this?
