Alonzo King Lines v. Classical Ballet

     Both of these images contain traditional partnering. In the first picture, the classical image, you see lifted chests and the legs are straight. This is also true of the second picture, however, the chests are towards odd angles. The male is in a really deep lunge and the woman has an open bent leg which is not conventional. The first image displays a peaceful grace while the second image displays pain or deeper emotions. The costumes in the classical pictures are very royal looking and traditional, while those in the second are more nude colored and basic. They seem more down to earth and representative of average pedestrians.
