 about this painting:


A dance with a glorious past

Ballet is an art with a long history. It goes back to Medieval times when graceful dancers performed in royal ballrooms and on stages of luxurious theaters in front of a sophisticated public. Since then, the spirit of dance has changed, new styles have appeared that have very little in common with the noble moves that used to be considered the summit of artistry a few centuries ago. However, ballet still stays a beautiful and highly appreciated form of dance art that gathers full halls and keeps enchanting us with its delicate charm. This wonderful painting by Leonid Afremov called ‘In the Ballet Class’ skillfully conveys the beauty of ballet on canvas.

Striving to perfection

Look at this slender, graceful ballerina! She is rehearsing her dance before an important performance. When you are on stage, you have no right to make a mistake. Everyone is looking at you, the lights illuminate your every step and every wave of your hand is clearly visible to the viewers. That’s why you should bring every move to perfection and show your best, otherwise the magic of the dance can be easily broken. The girl in the picture is trying hard to learn her part in the upcoming spectacle. She is standing on tiptoes, her legs stretched like wires and her posture immaculately straight. Her hands are soaring in the air like the wings of a bird. She perfectly controls her body and seems to be a beautiful angel in her delicate white dress. In a few days, she will shine on stage and bask in the applauses of the admiring audience. But even now, simply learning the moves in the ballet class, she inspires us with her grace, tenderness and persistence.
