Kara Yoo Leaman (CBA ’20 & ’23) explores one moment in George Balanchine’s Concerto Barocco to show how George Balanchine applied elements of Bach’s musical composition to choreography.

Developed at The Center for Ballet and the Arts at New York University.

This video is part of a series spotlighting CBA Fellowship projects, The Center’s interdisciplinary cohort of scholars and artists, and our mission to inspire new ideas and new dances.

In April 2021, Leaman published an article related to her fellowship project in The Journal of Music Theory. Read Music and Dance: Special Issue on Choreomusical Analysis here.
