Saturday morning ballet lessons ... First time ...


A first time for me.  My daughter took her first ballet lesson on a Saturday morning.  I tried to watch and capture some of the many scenes...





Degas was obsessed by the art of classical ballet, because to him it said something about the human condition. He was not a balletomane looking for an alternative world to escape into. Dance offered him a display in which he could find, after much searching, certain human secrets.



People call me the painter of dancers, but I really wish to capture movement itself.
 (Edgar Degas)
