I’m embarrassed to say that I had never been to the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts to see a performance. So I booked us tickets to see Program 2 (Dance Downtown) of ODC/Dance’s 41st annual home season. YBCA is such a beautiful, modern facility. I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to see something. They have a never-ending list of events to check out: dance, lectures, film, theater, music.
During intermission, we took a stroll over to the Metreon for creamy gelato. Can’t believe Target is coming later on this year.
I had mixed feelings about the program. I enjoyed the first and last dance, but the middle one was a little too kitschy and over-the-top for me. I was hoping to catch a ballet that I’ve been dying to see in Austin, but I think poor Dean is probably over-cultured. And not sure the rest of our group would want to see a ballet either! I wanted to sign us up for a 5k historical city tour or the music tour, but no one liked that idea either. Bunch of lazy-asses.
