Elephants dance and sway along to classical music.
Caution: Elephants may appreciate the finer things in life.
Eleanor Bartsch was warming up for the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra's performance of the Bach Concerto for Two Violins at the Circus World Museum in Baraboo, WI when she decided to serenade her neighbors, 44 and 55-year old elephants Kelly and Viola. To her surprise, they loved it.
These two elephants have been living together their whole lives, and apparently have developed the same fine tastes. Elephants have long been believed to appreciate music, hopefully next time Bartsch will give them an instrument to play along, like this man did for another elephant, Peter.
So elephants can dance and play music (kind of). Let's set them up with some computers and see if they can't start writing articles about themselves.
