Kathleen: The Dancing Crossing Guard

By Julye Huggins
Tempest: Without a Body

Toronto’s Dundas and Dufferin area just wouldn’t be the same without Kathleen, the dancing crossing guard. Stationed near The Grove Community School and Alexander Muir/Gladstone Public School since 2004, this official Toronto Police Services Crossing Guard busts out and livens up her duties with a little music and a whole lot of dancing - three hours a day, five day a week. Thanks to Lee Chapman, a parent of one of the school children, for sharing this little Toronto phenomenon. And for those of us that engage with our worlds through kinesthetic intelligence, I’m sure we can pleasantly relate: “The music’s off. Doesn’t matter.”Check out the video below for more on Kathleen, created by Ben Lenzner and Scott Humphries.
