Antony Tudor created Continuo for six dancers in 1971 for his students at The Juilliard School. An abstract ballet, a study in lyricism, it is clearly a precursor to Tudor’s The Leaves Are Fading.

American Ballet Theatre’s Studio Company (now ABT II) first performed Continuo at the Kaye Playhouse, Hunter College, New York on April 15, 2003, danced by Zhong-Jing Fang, Kelly Potter, Cathy Seither, Bo Busby, Alexandre Hammoudi, and Daniel Keene.

Continuo received its American Ballet Theatre Company Premiere at the All-Tudor Centennial Celebration at New York City Center, New York on October 31, 2008.
