Lines vs. Classical


These two picture perfectly contrast Lines to classical ballets. In the picture from Giselle, both dancers have arched backs and are extending their legs away from each other while in the picture from Lines, the dancers have hollow backs and their legs are together but also bent. In most pictures I saw from lines, the dancers’ bodies were bent in interesting ways, but classical choreography had the dancers look as long and straight as possible.
