Renown New York City Ballet principal dancer Tiler Peck performs "Fascinatin' Rhythm" from 'Who Cares?' by legendary choreographer George Balanchine, as a tribute to 2014 Kennedy Center Honoree Patricia McBride. Iconic ballerina Patricia McBride was honored alongside Al Green, Tom Hanks, Lily Tomlin and Sting. Her three-decade long dancing career brought to life countless works by George Balanchine and Jerome Robbins, with a list of partners that included Edward Villella, Arthur Mitchell, Jacques d’Amboise and Mikhail Baryshnikov. She was New York City Ballet's youngest principal dancer, and was the original dancer of this "Fascinatin' Rhythm" solo from 'Who Cares?', which Balanchine created just for her.
