Unless you are in excellent health, just go ahead and pay the $23 for parking in the Kennedy Center. Even the closest alternative at the Watergate is a long-ish walk, uphill, in the cold. If Metro is convenient for you and you are not in a rush, that, with the shuttle bus to the Kennedy Center, is the best option.

The evening was really enjoyable. The dancers are skilled and graceful, and the latter two ballets both well choreagraphed and lovely to watch. The first ballet, DMJ, however, was a bore. Our seats were fine, and the evening as a whole a great...continued
