Birthday parties. The circus. Performances by classically-trained ballet dancers in one of the world’s preeminent companies. Everything is made a little bit better with balloons.

Next month, you’ll be able to encounter thousands of the aforementioned inflatable objects and joy instigators at the New York City Ballet’s home at Lincoln Center. The balloons are an installation by visual artist Jihan Zencirli and will range in size from 10 inches to 10 feet.

You can stop by the David H. Koch Theater and check out the extra festive atmosphere for yourself during free, public viewing hours from February 17 through February 25 at the following times:

Mon–Fri 10am–6pm
Sat-Sun 10am–12pm

The happy helium habitat will also be on view during NYC Ballet performances on Feb 2 and Feb 24, with tickets going for $30.
