"As a young dancer in the New York City Ballet, Mr. B. (Balanchine) urged me to take jazz with Luigi. He knew that I needed jazz to do ballets like Agon and Slaughter on 10th Avenue well. Luigi's style and technique are the perfect compliment for ballet dancers and so needed for contemporary dance."
