Jerome Robbins during rehearsal for West Side Story (1957).

Although it has been  screened recently at the Dance on Camera Festival and other venues, those of you in the Bay Area still can catch the West Coast premiere of the much anticipated documentary, Jerome Robbins: Something to Dance About.  The film will be shown for free on February 5, 2009 at 7:30 P.M., not at the Museum of  Performance itself, but at the Premier Theatre, Letterman Digital Arts Center in the Presidio (Chestnut & Lyon Streets); for reservations and directions, check here.

The rest of us will have to wait until the film is shown on public television as part of the American Masters series on February 18, 2009 (but do check your local listings); there are a few blog posts on that site to whet your appetite as well.
