National Women’s Day was recently celebrated in Cape Town by Cape Town City Ballet performing Belles of the Ballet, a selection of delightful extracts from popular ballets. It was a celebration of Women in Love and a sight to behold !I was fortunate to once again be able to capture some images of these talented artists performing their magic, and I hope you enjoy looking at it as much as I enjoyed capturing it!
