Suzanne Farrell and George Balanchine dancing in a segment of "Don Quixote" at New York State TheaterDeveloped by George Balanchine at the New York City Ballet. His method draws heavily on his own training as a dancer in Russia. The technique is known for extreme speed throughout routines, emphasis on lines, and deep plis. Perhaps one of the most well known differences of this style is the unorthodox positioning of the body.20 Dancers of this style often have flexed hands and even feet, and are placed in off-balance positions. Important ballet studios teaching this method are the Miami City Ballet, Ballet Chicago Studio company, and the School of American Ballet in New York.
