Summary
Jerome Robbins, assisted by ballet master Jean-Pierre Frohlich, directs a rehearsal of excerpts from Fancy free. The section rehearsed begins with the sailors and two girls entering the bar, and continues to the end of the ballet. The sailors' solos are not rehearsed, and the third girl's role is not danced. There are many interruptions and repetitions. Robbins gives corrections and discusses the interpretation of scenes.
