6:00 pm–8:00 pm
Bryant Park (42nd Street & Fifth Avenue)
Learn ballet moves on the Bryant Park Lawn in a one-night-only master class led by Cynthia Harvey, former ABT ballerina and current Artistic Director of ABT’s Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis School. No previous experience with ballet is needed, and all fitness levels are welcome. At 6:55 pm ABT Principal Dancers Sarah Lane and Herman Cornejo share their journeys to the highest ranks of ballet as artist-athletes. Then three New York ballet companies perform: CONTINUUM Contemporary/Ballet, Doug Baum & Artists, and Da’ Von Doane & the Artists of the Shift.
Eats & Treats: Through March, watch ice skaters from this cozy covered food court The Lodge with a dozen new and classic NYC restaurants including Mah-Ze-Dahr bakery, Pierogi Boys, Good Stock, Todaro Bros, over-the-top Chimney Cakes by Stackery, a S’Mores Bar by Squish, an outdoor beer garden and more. All year long, choose from bureks and chocolate Babka from Bread Bakery, salad and mint lemonade from Le Pain Quotidien and wafels and ice cream from Wafel and Dinges (or all of the above) at the Bryant Park food kiosks.
