    One reason I spend the fall and winter months in NYC is to wallow in the repertory of – NYCB. Can’t wait

    Had a wonderful evening at the NYC Ballet Gala. The music was magical, the choreography superb, the dancing could not have been better and the story line reached your heart.
    Peter Martins and Paul McCartneywere gracious and friendly to all.
