Day 18: Columbus City Ballet

The Columbus City Ballet, directed by Shir Lee Wu, is another new favorite of ours. This was a special workshop with a technique class followed by pointe and then private coaching with three individual students.

The studio is tremendously spacious and the students are serious. There is an expression that is sometimes used for female ballet students. They are called "bunheads," because of the tightly coiffed hairdos they sport. I mention this because Columbus City Ballet had students with the most uniformly neat buns I've encountered on our travels.

It was a long day of work, but very rewarding and we hope to return to Columbus City Ballet in the future.
