CityDance Ensemble performs this original adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's "The Jungle Book," bringing characters such as Mowgli and Baloo to the National Zoo in a family-friendly show. In many of their movements, the contemporary dancers mimic the animals they embody (snake, wolf, monkey, tiger). It's just the show for those who can't get enough of the real thing at the zoo.

Sunday at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. National Zoo, Visitor Center Auditorium, 3001 Connecticut Ave. NW. 301-581-5204. $7.
