Antony Tudor Centennial Event Summary

The Antony Tudor Ballet Trust, in honor of the late choreographer's 100th birthday, proudly presented "The Antony Tudor Centennial Celebration" jointly with The Juilliard School at Lincoln Center on March 29 & 30, 2008.

The weekend brought together generations of dancers, writers and others who were touched by the life of Tudor. The event was highlighted by teaching workshops that reconstructed his class combinations and choreography. Panel discussions featuring dancers, writers and musicians offering commentary on his life and work were attended by over 250 guests and participants.

In addition to studio workshops, informal performances of
Little Improvisations, Continuo, Undertow and Judgment of Paris were performed by the JKO School at American Ballet Theatre, ABT II and New York Theatre Ballet respectively.

The weekend also saw a performance of
Dark Elegies as part of the Juilliard Spring Concert '08.The event was an exciting success, invigorating those who have been charged with preserving Tudor's legacy to the dance community. A forthcoming book and DVD commemorating the event is available for pre-order here. The Antony Tudor Centennial commemorative book and DVD will include historical photos, event photos, and remembrances of Tudor by both event attendees and others unable to attend the celebration weekend. Proceeds from the sale of these items will fund a Dance Scholarship at The Juilliard School in Antony Tudor's name.

The Antony Tudor Ballet Trust would like to extend our eternal gratitude to the members of the Centennial Committee, without whom this event would not have been possible.
