In 1958, Jerome Robbins' "ballet in sneakers," NY Export: Opus Jazz, became a smash hit when it was broadcast on The Ed Sullivan Show and toured around the world. Set to an evocative jazz score by Robert Prince, the dance told the story of disaffected urban youth through movement that blended ballet, jazz and ballroom dancing. Now, the work comes full circle in this vibrant scripted film adaptation, the first film to return Jerome Robbins' choreography to the city that inspired it since the movie version of West Side Story. Shot on location on New York City and featuring an ensemble cast of New York City Ballet dancers, NY Export: Opus Jazz re-imagines the original ballet for a whole new generation. Along with the dance film is a documentary where dance luminaries speak to the extraordinary history of the piece, while stylized screen tests of the cast of young New York City Ballet dancers reveal the enduring significance and appeal of the ballet. NY Export: Opus Jazz aired nationally on PBS' Great Performances series and was nominated for the Rose d'Or Award. Festivals: South by Southwest Film Festival 2010 (Audience Award Winner), Sarasota Film Festival, Atlanta Film Festival, Independent Film Festival of Boston, Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival, Northside Festival & New Zealand International Film Festival
