Summary
Jerome Robbins, assisted by ballet master Jean-Pierre Frohlich, directs two rehearsals of excerpts from Fancy free. The first rehearsal (Apr. 6) lasts approximately 47 minutes and includes many repetitions of the sequence in which the sailors and two girls are in the bar. The sailors' variations are not rehearsed. The first girl is danced by Mandy-Jayne Richardson at the beginning of the rehearsal, and later by Allison Brown. The second rehearsal (May 12) covers the sequence in which the three sailors meet the first girl, danced by Allison Brown. Robbins gives corrections to the dancers and discusses the choreography, particularly stressing aspects of characterization and acting.
