about this painting:



Dancing today is just one of many different types of amusement. There are many famous dancing performances that are loved all over the world like “West Side story” or “Cats: The musical”. Those people who perform in them and also in many other talented performances of classical and contemporary dance all over the world are, without any doubt, extremely gifted. However, when we see them on stage, we hardly ever ask ourselves, what hard work made them great and how many hours they had to give in to learn to dance like this. Today let us talk about some of the best dancing schools in the world:

  • The Vaganova Academy of Russian Ballet

Russia in the country where the classical dance was born in the 18th century, and it remains the place where its traditions are still very strong. The Vaganova Academy of Russian Ballet is one the oldest institution and also the best one in the world where talented dancers can make their first steps on a real stage and get higher education.

  • L’Ecole de Danse de l’Opera de Paris

This school of ballet is very respectable. Its best graduates can count on becoming part of Opera’s troupe. However, it is extremely hard to go that far, and only the most talented children will make it to professional ballerinas.

  • Royal Ballet School

Not only is Royal Ballet School is one of the most prestigious places in the world to study, but also the most expensive. However, it is worth it because the graduate easily find job in the UK and abroad.


No matter whether it is classical ballet or kathak dance, this kind of art has always inspired great artists to create incredible paintings.

Leonid Afremov is a very famous Belorussian postimpressionist. Impressionistic art has a lot in common with dancing, since it is all about emotions. So, it is only logical, that Afremov is so often inspired by dancing people.

On this canvas, you can see a pair of professional dancers performing on stage. There are a male and a female that are frozen in an important and dramatic moment of the performance. Their figures are expressive and graceful. Light strokes and colorful splashes of paint let us feel the temporality of the moment.

Afremov manages to capture not just reality but the mood of that scene.

You must understand my delight at being able to find and buy a copy of Alley by the Lake after years of searching. I cannot believe that just a year ago, I was in a Walmart in Iraq after being informed that they had an unlimited supply of these paintings. I ad also heard that Leonid Afremov himself was a slave in one of the Walmart's sweatshops. This completely outraged me, but I found it to be nothing but a simple hoax! After escaping the Taliban successfully, I came back home to find this website and was able to order it using the magic of technicalology! Thanks my lucky stars for gugle and beeng!
