With a style that fuses tap dance, Lindy hop and vernacular jazz, Caleb Teicher has quickly proven himself a choreographic force to be reckoned with. After becoming known as a Bessie Award–winning member of Michelle Dorrance's company (and a DM "25 to Watch" pick in 2012), Teicher started his own troupe in 2015. Since then, he's presented at high-profile venues like The Joyce and Jacob's Pillow's Inside/Out stage, and last year he was commissioned by New York City Center's popular Fall for Dance festival. This month, Caleb Teicher & Company will premiere its first evening-length work, More Forever, commissioned by Works & Process at the Guggenheim.

When people think of Tanaquil Le Clercq, one of George Balanchine's early muses (and wives), they're probably more likely to ruminate on the polio diagnosis that ended her performing career than her literary and culinary legacy. This is the perception that food scholar Meryl Rosofsky is looking to shift with a Works & Process at the Guggenheim program November 5 and 6 celebrating the 50th anniversary of Le Clercq's The Ballet Cook Book.
