One reason I live in the NY area is for the seasons..a taste of Spring in March and folks are extremely happy AND HAVING FUN~ the energy is amazing!! On this mild eve Steve and I saw a wonderful dance performance/City Center/Paul Taylor. Each of the three dances were fabulous~ and the last one, a debut that was written up in the Times last week was given standing ovation and many curtain calls…and then Paul Taylor, 78 years old, emerged and joined the company. Bravo!!
We discussed who goes to dance performance? I know dancers-former dancers-their families and friends- and later, I asked Steve (who enjoys this viewing as much as I do, and me a former performance dancer in college and later owner of dance/exercise studio (http://www.balanceandpower.com/meeteileen/php). I still love it-Zumba, weddings, etc., and he said, ” I never went to a Broadway play before I met you..”. I told him that I was sure he would have found it all, eventually! We agreed that spouses of the above mentioned were in the audience, for sure! Next week we will see a Brazilian music venue uptown, with friends.
Ah, New York!
