Train With Gelsey

November 28, 2001

I could spend days at a time watching old videos of Gelsey Kirkland. That lyricism! That lightness! She moves the way I dream of dancing in my most fantastical fantasies.


Good news for serious pre-professional students: Kirkland’s New York school is holding two auditions this summer. Dancers can try out for the academy’s all-day program, or a less intense division that only takes up the afternoons. Either way, students get the opportunity to train directly under the ballet icon herself.
