Graced with guests who complement the Civic’s company members, “To Larry” isn’t so much a program of perfect, spectacular ballet as a loving homage to hard work and old-fashioned discipline. The Longs’ choreographic aesthetic in such pieces as “Scenes de Ballet” and “Tarantella” reflects a straightforward, basic approach that’s both elegant and musical in its classicism….Looking forward, the company boasts some bright up-and-comers–Katherine Bruno, Sara Strom and Marco Clemente among them. As retrospective, “To Larry With Love” underscores the virtues and struggles of a life not only well spent but tirelessly devoted to dancing.
