So nice to be able to pull my sweetheart away from his work-till-six-am workdays for an hour of free ballet demos, "The Balanchine Ballerina".  There were excerpts from the Nutcracker, Swan Lake, and others I can't recall*, but my favorite was Western Symphony.  Mike's still analyzing to determine his fave. Sometimes I feel sorry for our future children, being software engineering ballet dancers will be a hard life, no doubt.

And this post would not be complete without mentioning the winter weather day perfection - cold enough to bundle up and stay comfortable lounging by the Lincoln Center plaza fountain.

*Update: Found this so the others included Allegro Brillante, Mozartiana, Symphony in C, and Tchaikovsky Suite No. 3. Also, it wasn't an excerpt from the Swan Lake ballet, but an excerpt from Balanchine's Tchaikovsky Pas de Duex choreographed to long-forgotten Swan Lake music.
