Serenade was created by George Balanchine for the premiere of his School of American Ballet. The work started with exercises that sought to show his students the fundamental differences between the ballet classroom and dance presented on stage. The choreographer incorporated unusual formations into the piece, such as a group of seventeen or five dancers, and incidents, such as the tardiness of one of them, the gesture another makes to protect herself from the sun, and the fall of a third one, to renew the tradition of classical dance.
