Oregon Ballet Theater Exposed!

 Izzie enjoying an August Sun-Puddle.

The Oregon Ballet Company spends a week each summer doing their classes outside for everyone to come and watch. The event is called OBT Exposed! They do their warm up, class and practice whichever ballet they are working on, all out doors. We picked a very hot day! When we got there the ballerinas had some layers and they kept shedding them as they danced. They luckily had some shade, we were sitting in the glaring sun. But it was still fun. We brought lots of water and a picnic lunch.

 Izzie was interested in taking Ballet so I wanted her to see real ballerinas in action.


 When the company took a lunch break, we took a fountain break! What a great way to cool off in the middle of the day. Maddie is in the teal & green suit, Izzie in the pink and orange suit.

 I splashed my feet and enjoyed watching them dance around. I LOVE how Portland has many fountains and they encourage people to come, hang out and splash. It really is a living city that people WANT to hang out and be outdoors in.

 On the way back to the car we came across some cute statues.

It was a super fun outing in Portland for the day!
