Tanaquil Le Clercq was one of George Balanchine’s muses and her body and style became an ideal in ballet. This excerpt from “American Masters — Tanaquil Le Clercq: Afternoon of a Faun” shows her dancing in Balanchine’s “Concerto Barocco” and includes commentary from Balanchine’s assistant and New York City Ballet dancer Patricia McBride Lousada on how Le Clercq (“Tanny”) became the “ideal.”
