Defying Gravity.

From the article:

"As part of a summer-long ritual, students in the Washington School of Ballet's summer intensive program cool off at the pool at McLean Gardens at the end of their eight-hour day in the Ballet's stifling second and third floor studios.  These are photos of temporary, passionate, burden-shedding."

Speaking of dance (kinda), tonight is the Joffrey Ballet Auxiliary Board's annual Pointe of Departure Art Exhibition, which I have helped to plan for the 3rd year running.  If you're in Chicago and looking for something to do tonight, think about supporting the beautiful Joffrey Ballet from 6-9 p.m. at Block 37!  Tickets are available at the door; more information here.

p.s. lots of love to my dearest friend E, who sent me the link to these gorgeous swimming dancers months ago and happens to be boarding a plane today for Germany, where she is moving for the foreseeable future to be with her fiancĂ©.  America (ok, me) misses her already, but I'm so excited for this next chapter of her life.  Bon Voyage, E!
