Ready to Dance!- ballet art


Les Sylphides, 8x10, oil on gallery-wrapped canvas

Back in the mid-nineties my ballet company performed Les Sylphides, a one act ballet of short dances to the music of Chopin. There were 3 female soloists, one male, and 18 corps dancers, called "Sylphs" in the ballet. The girls in the company all got a huge kick out of the little wings attached to the backs of their tutus, although they thought the ballet itself was pretty boring.
