Michelle Obama spoke at the 69th Annual American Ballet Theatre Spring Gala last night in New York’s Metropolitan Opera to a crowd of beautifully dressed dance enthusiasts, including such celebs as Renee Zellweger, Claire Danes and Kelly Ripa. “The arts are not just a nice thing to have or to do if there is free time or if one can afford it,” said the First Lady at an event at the Metropolitan Museum Of Art earlier that day. “Rather, paintings and poetry, music and fashion, design and dialogue, they all define who we are as a people and provide an account of our history for the next generation.”
