"Seven Brides for Seven Brothers" and Jacques d'Amboise


Anaheim Ballet is hosting their annual aidance fest this weekend. One of their events is a free screening of a classical dance film along with a speaker. The movie is shown in the beautiful Folino Theater at Chapman University. "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers" was released in 1954. It was directed by Stanley Dolan (who also directed "Singin' in the Rain). The movie is defined in dance history by a rollicking number choreographed by Michael Kidd. The seven brothers face off against their townsmen counterparts and the fun begins! If you look closely under the red hair, the littlest brother is Russ Tamblyn, who played Riff in the movie version of "West Side Story". Jacques d'Amboise, a classical dancer from the New York City Ballet was also one of the brothers. Mr. d'Amboise will be the speaker. WOW! He worked extensively under George Balanchine. Two of his four children are still active at NYCB. I am sure he will have some wonderful insights into the making of this film.

If someone would like to be an event organizer for this event, I would be happy to help. All you would have to do is meet people at the theater.
