Summary
Jerome Robbins directs a run-through of six variations from I'm old fashioned. The variations nicknamed Back to back and Tango were not used in the final version of the ballet, and the female role was cut from the sixth variation. The fourth variation, rehearsed here to the original Jerome Kern song I'm old fashioned, was later set to music by Morton Gould.
