A ballet dancer is a person who practices the art of classical ballet. Ballet is an artistic dance form performed to music, using precise and highly formalized set steps and gestures. Classical ballet, which originated in Renaissance Italy and established its present form during the 19th century, is characterized by light, graceful movements and the use of pointe shoes with reinforced toes.
This is a beautifully sculpted statue of a ballerina in the Attitude derrière position where the dancer stands on one leg (the supporting leg) while the other leg (working leg) is raised and turned out with knee bent to form an angle of approximately 90° between the thigh and the lower leg. This is a hard position to master and takes skill and coordination to pull off successfully!
This statue is a perfect gift for any student or teacher of ballet as it provides inspiration to perfect their art.
