The Dance Off

Have you ever been to the ballet?
I haven’t. But I witnessed something the other day which made me feel like I was right there, front and centre, at my very own personal show.

A young lioness unknowingly walks right into the path of her crinkled challenger. They both stop and stare at each other for what feels like forever. The lioness takes a step forward… and the show begins as the two dance around each other in a cloud of dust.

It was not an aggressive scene, nor a playful one. Just two passers-by showing off their moves, putting their best foot forward and maybe a little bit of bravado too, before strutting off in opposite directions as if nothing had happened.

It’s moments like these that I’m thankful I had my camera with me. Because without this special scene caught on camera, no one would have believed me.
