I've posted on my blog (http://toursenlair.b...nner-party.html) a menu I recently served for a ballet-themed dinner party. I'd love to hear more suggestions.

You could try Chinese Tea, Spanish Hot Chocolate, Mother Ginger [insert a ginger dish here], or anything from there....ooh, you could do a dish with nuts, too

At the end, it would be pas marche: don't--or rather, can't--walk! Posted Image

A Risotto Adagio would work....

Yes, I was thinking about this for the last several hours. Posted Image

I love it! Pas d'action at the end would work too.
Risotto Adagio... I have visions of Aurora balancing with a glob of rice in her hand....

i don't recall the details as it was years ago, but in a fit of whimsy one year a group of us decided that we would have a birthday party for rudolph nureyev, had a cake decorated with happy birthday rudolph and made up a sitting mannequin in a tunic and tights and even gave it silly "presents". those were the days -Posted Image

Wine, wine and more wine to recall the harvest in Giselle! Posted Image

Then at the end present the drunkest guest as the Queen or King of the harvest...Posted Image

Balanchine loved a vodka toast, and also apparently liked smoked salmon on pumpernickel bread.
