A good ballet dancer possesses discipline, natural talent, and an enchanted tutu that allows them to morph into a swan on command. Develop an appreciation for avian art with today's Groupon: for $45, you get an annual individual membership to New York City Ballet (a $90 value). Groupon users also have the added perk of purchasing buy-one-get-one-free tickets to any Friday- or Saturday-evening New York City Ballet show between now and June 12.
With more than 60 years of tiptoe-twirling history, the New York City Ballet boasts a seasoned, dedicated dance company that thrills audiences and ballet shoes at every performance. With each Friday- or Saturday-evening ticket purchase through June 12, Groupon users snag a companion ticket for free, allowing members, and whichever of their cultured friends has the brownest nose, to gorge eyes on the company's famously lush and lithe ballet performances. Dance lovers also score admission for two to up to four working rehearsals during the repertory season, along with two spots at New York City Ballet's curiosity-satisfying 90-minute seminars, where the company and special guests reveal the creative clockwork behind their sumptuous productions. Members also get a 15% discount at New York City Ballet's gift shop, a subscription to the company newsletter, advance notice of ticket sales, and the ability to reach, en pointe, the top cabinet where their roommate hides the cookies.
