She stands still and stoically, a ballerina clad in all white. Put some money in her bucket, and she will gracefully move.
Ballerina Mime is a fixture in Central Park in NYC. Was there earlier this summer and saw her perform. I recently learned her name is Therisa Barber and she’s a dancer from England. As I read more about her story, I realized she is a great do-it-yourselfer and deserves to be acknowledged for her work.
I took this photo of Barber performing. There was a great crowd of people around her, enjoying her fluid movements and grace. Children eagerly put money in her bucket just to see her move.
There are some truly unique buskers out there, and Therisa Barber is one of them. Please read more about her story at the link below and check out her web site. She is a person to be admired.
