My husband surprised me with tickets to see New York City Ballet’s Swan Lake for our two year wedding anniversary. I’ve had an obsession with ballet since I started dancing; there is something so beautiful and graceful about ballet you never see anywhere else– this night was truly a dream come true.
These pictures aren’t the best quality because I was using my iPhone, I wanted to document everything but I also didn’t want to lug a big camera around all day.
Since we live about an hour away from New York City my husband and I really wanted to spend the day running around, looking at art galleries, and taking advantage of the day. I had wanted to dress up a lot more but also wanted to be comfortable all day since I knew I would be walking for most of the day (hence the flats) so I started to get self conscious walking up to Lincoln Center. However there was such a huge difference between how formal people were dressed– I saw a lot of denim and a lot of cocktail dresses which made me feel at ease.
The theatre was so beautiful, but nothing compared to the dancing- I couldn’t take my eyes away from the stage. I can’t wait to go back and may have already looked up tickets for the Nutcracker.
