Escalator Dancing at Centre Pompidou
I’ve always envied how skateboarders and parkour athletes can transform urban landscapes into their personal playgrounds. While I may lack their prowess and skills, I do have dance experience on my side. While taking the many flights of escalators up to the contemporary art galleries of Centre Pompidou in Paris, my sister and I decided to put all those years of ballet and jazz training to good use. Here’s a tip: wait until there’s a gap in the line up so you have ample space to perform (and embarrass yourself a little less).
