35 Years Ago This Month
The March 1981 issue of Dance Magazine featured a young Lar
Lubovitch as its cover star. Then 12 years into his dance-making
career, the 38-year-old Juilliard grad admitted that choreographing
didn’t always come easily. “At 25, the pressures of having my own
company were too much,” he said. In 1974, he even disbanded
his modern troupe for a year. Eleanor Rachel Luger wrote, “At one
point Lubovitch took a job go-go dancing…and decided he would
only go back to choreographing if it ‘felt as good’ as the six hours
of moving he was doing daily at the disco.” Today, he continues
to choreograph for his troupe, Lar Lubovitch Dance Company. His
highly musical creations also grace the repertoires of companies like
American Ballet Theatre, San Francisco Ballet and the Joffrey Ballet.
