last weekend at  The Ballet Retreat, the repetoire from Balanchine's 'Serenade'  we were learning included  a number of them. I'd  touched on them briefly elsewhere, but  that was  last weekend's main piece of 'new'  technique ...

A more in depth post on April 2019's The ballet Retreat coming soon.
