Tapped In: Restaurant Week, Fitness Classes for Kids, Help Find Tracy Harper
LINCOLN CENTER PARTNERS WITH AVENUES SCHOOL Lincoln Center recently announced it is starting a partnership with Avenues: The World School, the new private school in Chelsea, which gained some renown for having Suri Cruise as a student. The partnership will allow for students to participate in internships and attend rehearsals and performances with their families at Lincoln Center. "We firmly believe that students exposed to the arts will not only lead more fulfilling lives, but be better prepared for higher education and careers in the 21st century economy," Reynold Levy, president of Lincoln Center, said in a statement.
