I'm heading to New York pre-Christmas, 14-20 Dec. Does anyone have any good recommendations for things I should see when I'm out there? I wanted to see NYCB but have a bit of an aversion to Nutcrackers, so I'm not sure about that. Any other good tips?

Lyndsey, you can read the NYC dance calendar at:

Drop me a line when you're in town; I'd love to meet you.

Thanks for that, great site.

I'll get in touch when I'm over.

Lyndsey, I believe Wally Cardona is performing at BAM (http://www.bam.org), Marie Chouinard at the Joyce (http://www.joyce.org) and Caden Manson at DTW (http://www.dtw.org). There's of course lots of Broadway, off Broadway and off off Broadway but you'd have to get your tickets early (http://www.broadway.com.

There's the AIDS benefit gala on Dec 12 (if you can get there a bit earlier) featuring guest dancers from around the world.

And, we have lots of members and volunteers in NYC if you want to meet up with them.

Alvin Ailey's City Center season lasts thoughout the month of December, and that's always an enjoyable evening.

Also, if you haven't been before, the NYC Performing Arts Library at Lincoln Center is a great place to warm up while checking out the vast book, film and music collection. There's also a rotating exhibition, though I'm not sure what it is now.

NYCB's 'Nutcracker' is fun, if you've never seen it before, though ticket prices are a bit steep. The casting is posted on the NYCB site, as well as ticket availability (though it's usually not completely sold out, even when the chart says so).
