On this day in 1904 Giorgi Melitonovitch Balachivadze was born in St. Petersburg, Russia. You probably recognize him as George Balanchine, co-founder of the New York City Ballet and one of the greatest choreographers to ever create a ballet.  To celebrate the anniversary of his birth, we rounded up a few Dance Magazine articles on his work and his legacy. From cover stories on post-Balanchine NYCB dancers, to an article about how the School of American Ballet is keeping the his teachings current. Enjoy!
