Best Shot Monday ~ Bailar!

I think Ballet Folklórico is one of the most beautiful dances around. The bold and colorful dresses that seem to have endless layers always bring a smile to my face and reminds me of the festivities back home, but they are happening here in Austin with Cinco de Mayo around the corner.

However, the photo of the lady dropping her shopping cart in the grocery store to bailar (dance) to the Mariachis without a care in the world, while the rest of us in the produce section looked on, is the classic moment I captured this week.

For more best shots, dance on over to Mother May I.

The dancer looks like a porcelain doll! Andrea, you caught the movement of her skirts just perfectly!
The lady dancing in the store...with her necklaces cat purse...of course she's dancing! A person like that is always dancing in her heart. She looks like a little girl :)
You captured two beautiful moments.
