Black Tie International: Steven Caras:  See Them Dance

The Kravis Center for the Performing Arts will host the world premiere of the new public TV documentary STEVEN CARAS: SEE THEM DANCE on February 24.

Presented by Arizona PBS, the film concerns the life and work of Mr. Caras, a former New York City Ballet dancer, who transformed his career to become one of the world's most renowned dance photographers. Currently a resident of West Palm Beach, Caras is also a published author, guest lecturer, ballet master and founding chairman of the Randolph A. Frank Prize for the Performing Arts in Palm Beach. For more information, please visit

Directed by Emmy Award winner Deborah Novak, Steven’s story begins in the 1950s, when men did not readily pursue a career in ballet without escaping unscathed. In spite of the bullying he endured, he persevered, receiving full scholarships to the Joffrey School and the School of American Ballet in New York City.  At 18, with only three years of training, he was personally invited by the legendary choreographer George Balanchine* to join his company, the New York City Ballet.

Without question, Balanchine would change his life.

During a 14-year period of dancing with NYCB, Balanchine took note of Caras’ gift as a photographer and granted him privileged access to photograph all aspects of City Ballet’s private world.

STEVEN CARAS: SEE THEM DANCE will present rare, behind-the-scenes photographs of ballet superstars such as Mikhail Baryshnikov, Suzanne Farrell, Rudolf Nureyev and Natalia Makarova. These now historic dance moments are but a few of the countless arresting images featured in the film.  Lively interviews with dance icons further enhance the film. They include Peter Martins, Mia Michaels, Jacques d’Amboise, Patricia McBride, Jean-Pierre Bonnefoux, Allegra Kent, Sean Lavery, Kay Mazzo, Elizabeth Streb and Virginia Johnson, among others.

Wall Street Journal drama critic Terry Teachout, fine art and photography expert Sarah Morthland, and New York Public Library at Lincoln Center's Executive Director Jacqueline Z. Davis are also among those who appear in the documentary, commenting upon the artistic and historic significance of Caras’ work.

Above all, the documentary STEVEN CARAS: SEE THEM DANCE features the compelling story of this unique dancer/photographer, giving viewers an intimate look at the ballet world through the eloquent narrative and unique perspective of a male dancer's personal journey of challenges and heroic accomplishment.

Both director Deborah Novak and Mr. Teachout, author of All in the Dances: A Brief Life of George Balanchine, will engage in a conversation with Mr. Caras onstage at the Kravis Center’s world premiere of the documentary on February 24.

STEVEN CARAS: SEE THEM DANCE will have its New York premiere on March 7 at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center. It will begin airing nationally on stations of the public television system on March 9.

General admission tickets are $20 for the world premiere of STEVEN CARAS: SEE THEM DANCE at the Kravis Center on February 24. Tickets are available for purchase at the Kravis Center box office, 701 Okeechobee Blvd. in downtown West Palm Beach; online at; or by phone at (561) 832-7469 or (800) 572-8471.
