It's Nights Like These

It's nights like these that make me so thankful I'm immersed in the dance world of New York City!

After a super long Monday of week 2 ABT intensive (and after taking an additional ballet class later since we got out early...have I mentioned I'm an overachiever? It's a sickness.) I went to the opening of Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet's spring season. It was such a nice evening even though I'm beat, haha.

Many thanks to the company for inviting the bloggers. I was joined by Evan, Ariel, Philip, Matt, and the newest blogger (and, more importantly, New York Times critic) Claudia - all in the front row. It was great to see them all there and catch up after I missed the last Cedar Lake blogger meet-up when they did Glassy Essence. Plus I saw a few other dancer friends at the mini reception after the show. Good times.

The program was very interesting...I'm writing about it for ExploreDance, so details to come soon. And during intermissions there was lots of schmoozing and conversation amongst the packed audience since it was opening night. The program runs through next weekend, so check it out if you have time.

More about ABT the next few days, plus I might be attending a book party for The New Yorker this week even though my internship finished, AND photos from yesterday's little showcase thing coming soon.

I've never seen Cedar Lake perform. Hope to soon. Looking forward to your review.
You've got a pretty cool thing going (albeit crazy busy!!)
