The subway is New York City's biggest theatre. There you will find millions of characters. Heather waits for the train at Astor Place with her fellow straphangers, although she does appear to be the only person peering down the track en pointe.

Heather is wearing a Danskin theatrical pink 29 inch wrap skirt ($27.00, style 9562), Danskin Microfiber footless tights ($12.50, style 711) and a Danskin lavender wrap tank leotard ($36.00, style 2082).

Heather stands in 11th position. You didn't know there was an 11th position in ballet? This is the position that says, "I'm waiting for the train, I'm drinking my coffee, and I am a New Yorker, so don't mess with me."

Heather received rapt and respectful attention from her audience on the 6 train heading uptown.

A elegant show needs a grand set. Heather found her grand set on the balcony in Grand Central Terminal.

A great show needs a great supporting cast and crew. Major ballet companies have a cast of thousands (or at least it seems that many). We made do with two. Here Robert, wearing a black Weatherproof Denver Athletic Club jacket, provides partnering support to Heather. Natalie was our fearless photographer. (Our cast of thousands can be seen following directions in the background.)

Danskin clothing can be purchased at www.danskin.com, by calling 1-800-288-6749 or at one of their many stores. Don't forget to enter EXPLORE203 at checkout for a 20% discount. Denver Athletic Club wear can be purchased at the Denver Athletic Club in Denver.
