First, Second and Fourth Positions
Of all the things I came across on the internet this week, this was by far my fave: the Tumblr “Ballet, Cats and Other Things” from New York City Ballet principals Wendy Whelan and Janie Taylor. (Both, whom I’m a huge fan of.) It’s basically the dancers’ arty iPhone snapshots of, well, ballet, cats and some other things. And you know how I feel about ballet and cats. (Is required that if you’re a dancer, you also love small, furry animals?)
It’s cool to get a peek into Whelan and Taylor’s lives—especially the up-close looks at recent NYCB productions, like “Sleeping Beauty,”В “Diamonds”В and “Swan Lake.”
And, of course, the cat photos are pretty irresistible, too. I laughed out loud when I saw the one above with Whelan’s astute caption!
Have a wonderful weekend!

It’s so gray and gross in NYC–and it’s been like this for days. I think every single person I’ve spoken to today has said some variation of: “I wish I could have stayed in bed.”
Can we have some sunny, warm, spring weather? Please?

Sigh. Il est tres difficile d’ГЄtreВ un chat.
