Summary
Jerome Robbins, assisted by ballet master Christine Redpath, directs a rehearsal for Variations on I'm old fashioned. The rehearsal consists of a complete run-through of the ballet, but variations are not rehearsed in order. After the first five variations, the eleventh and twelfth variations and the finale are rehearsed, followed by variations six through eleven with principals only. Robbins gives corrections, discusses and demonstrates choreography.
