Ballet of the Elephants
by Leda Schubert

Fifty dancing elephants dressed in tutus, fifty dancing girls performing to "The Circus Polka" that you are hearing now. 425 performances. 104 cities.

"Ballet of the Elephants" became a reality.

In 1942, the lives of three talented men with big ideas came together in an unlikely partnership when, together, they created the biggest circus extravaganza in history. John Ringling North, owner of the circus, thought up the wild idea. He invited Igor Stravinsky to compose the music and George Balanchine to choreograph the dance. The result..."The Ballet of the Elephants."

Today, the dance continues in Leda Schubert''s picture book, Ballet of the Elephants.
