Ballet in Print: 2011 Balanchine Wall Calendar

NYCB twelve months of the year? Who could resist? Calendars are one of the easiest ways to perk up your room, kiddos, so here’s a lovely, inspirational option for you ballerinas-in-training.

Published in June of this year, this calendar includes gorgeously crisp full-color shots, much cleaner than some of those generic ballet calendars with hazy, out-of-focus photos of students and trainees. You’ll be looking at some of the best dancers in the country performing famous Balanchine choreography. I know what’s going on my holiday list!
