Directed by Jody Lee Lipes & Henry Joost | 2010

With Tiler Peck, Brittany Pollack, Robert Fairchild

“This film is just about the purest, sexiest thing going in ballet.”
—New York magazine

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 and abstract urban backdrops, the dance told the story of disaffected urban youth through movement that blended ballet, jazz and ballroom dancing with Latin, African and American rhythms to create a powerfully expressive and contemporary style. This scripted film adaptation, directed by Jody Lee Lipes (Ballet 422) and Henry Joost (Catfish), is the first to return Robbins’ choreography to the streets of New York since the movie version of West Side Story. A unique and compelling abstract narrative, NY Export: Opus Jazz captures the majestic landscape of New York City as well the subtle beauty, energy and sensuality of Robbins’ original dance piece.
