Have you seen City.Ballet, the online documentary series about New York City…




When I had a minute to do some pinning, I added a few pins to my "ballet, dance" board.

I guess I got a little carried away. My original intention was simply to pin a few pictures and share the board with Miss Prima Ballerina herself, but I just kept pinning. There are over 200 pins on ...
