‘Wendy Whelan — To the Point: 
A Conversation with Emily Bingham’

Be forewarned: Wendy Whelan is not here to dance but to talk about dancing. Which is almost as good. Sponsored by Kentucky to the World, she will be having a discussion with author Emily Bingham, Louisvillian to Louisvillian, about her life in ballet and what the future holds now that she has retired as the principal dancer of the New York City Ballet. “I’m deciding who I want to dance with,” Whelan said. “I’m deciding what I want to do each day. It’s not a place I’ve been at in my career before this. It’s daunting and scary, and it’s so beautiful.” There is a reception at 5:30 p.m. with the talk beginning at 6:30 p.m.
