Walking home from after-dinner drinks we often stroll past the open windows of Ballet Austin's Downtown digs. Here are ballerinas and ballerinos in the throes of warm-ups (third to fourth position), rehearsing a particularly tricky phrase (perhaps for The Glass Project?), or chatting it up after practice. For a brief moment, standing on the sidewalk of West Third, we are transported elsewhere; and even though we know what we're looking at is a work-in-progress, isn't this one of the things great art can do?
