Summary Violette Verdy and Helgi Tomasson discuss George Balanchine's La Source; some funny jokes in Balanchine's choreography; the difficult promenades in this work; the accents that help to create the atmosphere; the famous dive at the end; Verdy learning something about herself by being chosen for this role; Tomasson began dancing La Source soon after arriving at New York City Ballet; Tomasson learning from Verdy; the typical Balanchine movement in this work; accomodating the feet and arms for speed; Balanchine bringing out the best in the dancers; the most typical of French School movements in this ballet; Balanchine talking about hands and flowers; the trickiest parts in the choreography; the hardest, most surprising and difficult things for dancers to learn in this work; and how Balanchine knew more about dancers then they knew about themselves.
