I have been drawn to this decrepit building in downtown Atlanta for years. So I decided to spend my Sunday morning gathering my nerve to scale a set of crumbling stairs to try the doorknob of the former Atlanta Dance Theatre. Locked!! But, full of intrigue and beauty all the same. It has been tempting me for some time - the delicious irony of being a dancer in the city for years but not knowing the history of ADT despite my research. I am hoping that someone can shed some light. I won't tell you I wasn't scared - but the height and heat was intoxicating. And as I felt the doorknob in my palm I could almost hear the giggles of little girls in ballet slippers behind the door.
It was worth the wait.
