21 ’til 21: Wendy Whelan

Our 21 ’til 21 Salon Series hit another high note this weekend with an afternoon brunch in honor of Wendy Whelan. Wendy is a principal dancer with the New York City Ballet, but it was a performance titled Restless Creature that inspired our gathering.

Restless Creature is a modern dance performance in four parts, each part a duet of sorts between Wendy and four male choreographers: Kyle Abraham, Joshua Beamish, Brian Brooks and Alejandro Cerrudo.
