The ballet is a magical experience. The show is always filled with impossibly slender girls atop powerful legs. There isn’t any movement that a ballerina cannot do without her legs. Legs are like tree roots. Trees need roots like a ballerina needs legs.

The brush strokes create such a vivid feeling of movement. The dancers almost appear to spin in front of our eyes. The shades of orange and purple used in this painting highlight the power of the dancers’ legs and glow of the stage lights on the curtain.
