Afternoon of a Faun: Tanaquil Le Clercq

July 21, 2014

USA | 2014 | 91 Minutes | Nancy Buirski

Of the great ballerinas, Tanaquil Le Clercq may have been the most transcendent. She mesmerized viewers and choreographers alike, and was the muse to both Balanchine and Jerome Robbins. She was the foremost dancer of her day until at age 27, Tanny was struck down by polio and paralyzed. She never danced again.
