Ballet at the Zoo
A few months ago, I took a trip to the Cleveland MetroParks Zoo to watch the Cleveland Ballet perform “Alice”.
For those of you who don’t know me, I took tap, ballet and jazz lessons for 15 years. (And like my mother used to say, it’s a good thing I did. I’m still klutzy. )
The show seemed to feature many kids and teens. The youngest looked like a preschooler. She was adorable.
I was enchanted by the strength yet lightness of their leaps and jumps. Their skill was mind-blowing. Despite how young some of the dancers were, they danced like professionals. Case in point, the skirt came off one dancer’s costume while she was performing. She went on like nothing had ever happened. Another young man dropped the fan he was dancing with. He bent down, scooped it up and went on with the dance. This is something my beloved dance teacher, Miss Ruth, taught us from the beginning.
Here are a few videos of the performance.
And here are a few pictures of the grounds and the performance.
And finally, the elephant that was out on exhibit as I was leaving.

My name is Kathryn. I live in suburban Cleveland. I have 2 cats, who are my kids. I work in early childhood education, specializing in infants at a local childcare center. I’ve also worked with preschoolers and school aged kids there. I used to be an ESL teacher in South Korea.
I love to bake. My coworkers get to be my taste testers. I enjoy coloring, and I even participate in a coloring Meet Up group. I’m a fan of all kinds of music, but country is my favorite. I started taking a tap class at a local dance studio. Ginger Rogers, I’m not. But I’m holding my own after *mumble years* away from it.
My kitties, Gidgette and Ivory, are my favorite models for my photography. I play around with photo editors to create what I call “Works of Art”. I’m not very good at it, but I do it anyway.
