 Notes″Other Dances″ was created especially for a gala benefit for the Library of Performing Arts at Lincoln Center. The program notes for that occasion follow:

″The title of this series of dances reflects their relationship to Jerome Robbins′ ″Dances at a Gathering″. There was so much of Chopin′s music that Mr. Robbins wished to choreograph that he has used this opportunity to devise for Miss Makarova and Mr Baryshnikov these Other Dances -- a waltz and four mazurkas.″

Dedicated to the memory of Eugenia Doll.
