Article

Neoclassicism in dance is part of the historicist modernist movement of the first third of the 20th century; it indicates an approach that redefines movement in relation to music and makes it independent of the narrative plot by placing form over content. The term was first applied to characterize George Balanchine’s (1904–1983) Apollo (1928) to Igor Stravinsky’s (1882–1971) music, but was soon extended to the choreographer’s works to music by Peter Tchaikovsky (1840–1893) such as Serenade (1934).
