A 52-Week Photo Journey

… Mary Nell Moore's Photography

Week 5 – #2. Below The Knees


This week I chose to post a photograph I took at the Sarasota Opera House during the Sarasota Cuban Ballet School’s “On Stage” performance. What transpires below the knees is but one part of a fully integrated and graceful ballet movement. The level of talent and artistry of the students who participated in the school’s recently concluded summer intensive workshop was beyond extraordinary. For the first time in 60 years, students from the Cuban National Ballet School were allowed to dance in the United States. This is the first of what is hoped will be an annual exchange between the Sarasota Cuban Ballet School and the Cuban National Ballet School and a more harmonious relationship with Cuba.

A true Southerner, I was born in Georgia but lived most of my adult life in Chattanooga, Tennessee. In 2001, my husband and I retired and moved to beautiful Sarasota, FL. We quickly realized that we were not retirement material and could not play golf two or three times a week so we got our real estate licenses and affiliated with Coldwell Banker on Longboat Key. My love for photography is very beneficial to me when photographing interiors and exteriors of the homes we list. Other than photography, I have a keen interest in genealogy and golf (whenever I can find the spare time from our real estate practice).
