A few weeks ago, one of my friends mentioned the ballet. I'm not sure who or what prompted the discussion, but very quickly all of us decided it was wrong that we'd spent this much time in New York and not all gone to the ballet together.
We decided to go after work to an All Balanchine performance. We'd see four separate performances, all originally choreographed by George Balanchine.
First, though, we'd need to eat.
I've been looking for an excuse to visit my favorite Creperie for a while, and this was the perfect one. Vive La Crepe on 68th and Columbus is only a few blocks from Lincoln Center. We headed up there after work and joined the crowd for some sweet and savory crepes.
Danielle even took a quick (sans flash) shot of the dancers at the end of the last performance--which was my absolute favorite. Teresa Reichlen danced the second movement and was absolutely stunning.
And even felt a little inspired to try some dance moves of our own.
