What better way to send you into the weekend than with something beautiful, lovely and fascinating!?! Introducing the truly wonderful City.Ballet. series, a recent discovery* and my latest obsession. City.Ballet. is an online series of short videos about the New York City Ballet. Everything from the dancers' pursuit of a career in ballet, to growing within the company, coping with injuries and dating one another! It is such an amazing peak behind the curtain (literally!) at my beloved ballerinas and I feel like I've learned a TON about what their lives and careers are actually like.
Each episode is about 6 minutes (perfect for watching when you need a quick break from or work or to relax before bed!) and they're narrated by the one and only quintessential New Yorker, Ms. Sarah Jessica Parker so, yeah... I feel like I've just discovered NYC Ballet's best kept secret because Season 2 just launched (how am I just hearing about this!?), so start with Season 1 Ep. 1 below and enjoy every minute from there!!
