One of my favorite parts of summer in Portland is when the Oregon Ballet Theater rehearses out in the park each day for a week. This is the week! If you can, check it out over at Director Park. It's free! More information here.
My friend, Debbie, took this photo of a ballet class (not in the park). Isn't it lovely?

I wish I could be there…I love ballet!
that’s soo cool! it’s like a free ballet show huh?
I adore ballet. i wanted to be a ballerina up until I was a freshman in high school and then i fell in love with architecture and that pretty much sealed my fate. But there will always be a huge soft spot for m and ballet 🙂
Sounds freaking lovely!
how fun. i took ballet for years and i’d love to do it again… but my um “center of gravity” has shifted a bit 😛
heavenly. hope you’ll go in my place 🙂
Love it! Did you and Lisa end up taking a class at obt? I’d totally drop in sometime with you. I miss dancing! I’m just soooo out of shape these days
It would be lovely if every school or studio had a week of class in the park! I’m a modern dancer… maybe I’ll suggest this to my company (we used to do it quite often when I was in college!)
I’m not far–Camas, and it looks like a lovely thing to see. Thanks for the heads up!
oooh this is dreamy. i so wish we did this in dallas…but of course it would have the be in spring or fall, as the poor dancers would have heat strokes if they attempted this during our blazing summer months ;-(
I walked by this the other day on my way to the library. I didn’t know what was going on, but now I wish I had stopped!
aww, thanks chelsea 🙂
this reminds me from two years ago when I was visiting portland and saw all these lean, pretty ballet dancers practicing outside. something about ballet brings a wave of calmness over me. didn’t see them two weeks ago when I visited though. 🙁
