The Greatest City in the World

Anyone who knows me knows that New York City is my happy place. This may seem obvious or cliche because most artists would agree that NYC is Mecca. There is just something magical about this sparkling, energetic city. I love it! Sure enough, I left feeling charmed yet again.
Every summer I attend a dance conference in the big apple. As a benefit to my staff, I invite them to come along as well. It is such a good time. This year we attended the Pulse -- a convention put on by Broadway Dance Center. All of the SYTYCD peeps were there. My favorite class was with Mia Michaels. Anyway, the weekend was grand and for a moment I stepped outside of my life and partied like a rock star.
I missed my family like crazy! It was so hard to be in NYC without them b/c they always come with me. But, it was really great to have time to re-connect with old friends, hang out in the city that never sleeps and get my dance on....Can't wait to go back!

Grand Central Station with Elizabeth, ADC instructor.
Out to dinner with Jaime.

Going to the new Twyla Tharp show, Come Fly Away. Absolutely fabulous -- she is my creative role model and I love her choreography. The dancers were incredible.

Our lovely hotel room at the Waldorf Astoria -- thanks Seth!

My favorite place to enter Central Park.
