Amid horns and exhaust, ballet dancers leap and twirl among Mexico City traffi

The theatre company Ardentia has introduced a program aimed at bringing classical ballet to the streets in 58-second spurts to correspond with the length of a Mexico City traffic light.
Street performances began two weeks ago and are delighting the drivers and pedestrians who pause to watch.
Resident Daniel Campos Garcia said it’s “like a dream”.
The initiative was inspired by photographer Oscar Rodriguez, who took pictures of dancers in the streets.
