Can you tell where I am in this photo? Probably not! I was at Lincoln Center, which is an area of New York City filled with many different theatres, the NYC Public Library for the Performing Arts, the Julliard School, and my school- the School of American Ballet. I'm usually here about 4 times a week for my ballet classes, but now that it is May I get to come for ballet performances as well!
For the past several years, Lincoln Center has had a lot of construction. Here I am on the new fountain! It is automated and can do lots of different patterns with the water. Lots of people sit around the edge of the fountain, eating lunch and taking photos. Right now, both the New York City Ballet and American Ballet Theatre are in season. The day these photos were taken, I saw the New York City Ballet perform three ballets. I got to see one of my favorite ballerinas, Sterling Hyltin, perform in Morgen. Students at my school are very lucky, because we can go to see ballet performances at very low prices.
See the tall white building behind me in this photo? That's the Rose Building, which houses the School of American Ballet, where I take my ballet classes. It also has dorms for the older students. Now you know where I spend a lot of my time! I have to take two different subway lines to get to Lincoln Center.
I'm sorry I haven't blogged in May. Our family computer is not doing very well so I haven't been able to get on it to upload photos or blog. Now that it's summer, my mom doesn't have to teach, so she'll be home more. I can use her laptop to blog, so I will be blogging more yet again.
I've missed you all!
