LINES vs. Classical Ballet

large_dancers-swansLINES vs. Classical Ballet

My picture i chose from lines is a group who is connected and interacting, but you can tell it is a more modern ballet because of their use of bent arms and legs and flexed feet. In my Classical Ballet picture it is a group from swan lake who is also doing group work. They are connected as well but they still have straight legs and elongated necks with much composure.

  1. I think it’s really interesting that you chose to portray the differences and similarities in a group of dancers. Seeing these two pictures- the differences are highlighted in the lines of the dancers and their proximity to the ground. The LINES ballet is earthy and extremely symbolic. The classical ballet maintains beautiful lines- heads are high and every body part is angled perfectly to portray perfection. I loved your picture choices!!
