Trailer for Afternoon of a Faun: Tanaquil Le Clercq.

It all changed with Tanny. She stood out even as a child – by the age of 16 she was a winner – tall, thin, elegant, witty, with a big jump and sardonic grin. Her jazzy grace, jauntiness, intelligence and sexuality were different and intensely compelling. She was delicate and brash - a ballerina of rare versatility. George Balanchine could not look at her, so struck was he by that difference. Eventually he did, and his world and that of ballet changed forever. No one was thought to have a brighter future until it suddenly all stopped. On a tour of Europe, Tanny was struck down by polio at age 27. She never danced again. This is the first film ever on Tanaquil Le Clercq, a dancer of uncommon style and beauty who was muse to both George Balanchine and Jerome Robbins.
