Ideas for Choreography

When I was a small person, my mother used to take me to the ballet. Not only did she take me to performances, she took me out of school to attend open rehearsals and the like.

In 1973, I wrote a letter to George Balanchine, suggesting an idea for a ballet:

Little did I know that Jerome Robbins had already made that ballet - in 1953. He called it Fanfare.

I never got a response to my letter.

While the idea maybe have already been done, I'm impressed with your 12 year old creativity and confidence! He should have met up with you anyway, who knows what else you would have come up with.
