Paul RasporichComment

The dancers of the National Ballet of Canada joyfully defy gravity, if only for a brief moment in practice. The athleticism and discipline required of them is as great, if not more so than the greatest athletes. Musicality, artistry, and acting are also required of them. I have depicted the dancer in the foreground, beads of sweat forming on her back, as like Degas, I am more interested in the process and studio practice, than the final performance of Ballet.
