Spring Break in New York City

nyforplay2What do dance teachers do for Spring Break? They don’t go to the beach. They head to New York City, of course. And that’s just what I, and my dancin’ mom, did a few weeks ago. We saw Newsies. We saw Kinky Boots. We shopping at Capezio. We danced down sidewalks. And while I could only make a weekend of it, she stayed a little longer for classes and more shopping for dance shoes. Here’s a few more snaps from our weekend.

The dancing in Newsies was to die for. Unbelievable. Talk about needing a foam roller at the end of the night. Those guys were jumping everywhere. And Kinky Boots delivered in its own right, of course. The vocals in this Tony-winner knocked us off our feet boots. Seats were at a premium, so some of the visual effects of the choreography were lost on us as we were in the balcony. But the singing. The singing, you guys.

One where the waiters and waitresses are up singing the whole night. And, it’s open 24 hours, so it’s ever too busy for you, just come back in the morning.

And, though we didn’t have it, it’s worth noting that you can get a bowl of Gene Kelly’s Beef Stew. It’s no family recipe or anything, but always fun to see little tributes pop up in the least likely places.
