A secret dream

Spectators will be astonished by the wonderful performance of this lady. She is very young, but she has a dream – to become a famous ballet-dancer. She has inclined to lace her ballet shoes and probably she’ll appear on the stage soon. It might be her first performance. We can’t see the girl’s face clearly, so her emotions remain a mystery for us. We can only guess how she is feeling inside before such an important event in her life. She might be nervous or quite the contrary – calm and confident. What we know for sure is that she will dance, drawing to herself everybody’s attention. Because when you have a dream and you make efforts to realize it, your wish will come true!

  • Her pose as one of her legs is standing on tiptoe


  • Her fluffy tutu similar to a white flower.


This delicate picture shows the woman’s grace and strength at the same time. Purchase this beautiful work of art by Leonid Afremov and feel the unity of music and dance, because that’s what ballet means.
