Sketching at the National Ballet of Canada

On Sunday I went with a friend to the National Ballet School of Canada downtown Toronto to watch a class which was being instructed by Greta Hodgkinson, who is a principal dancer at the National Ballet.
Half the time I was mesmerized by the dancers and their elegance... It was wonderful though to have been able to capture some movement on paper.
Such an amazing opportunity for aspiring ballerinas and ballet dancers to be able to be taught by a star like Greta!

I haven't been near my computer recently to. One visiting you all.
I hope you are all well.

i love gestural drawings, and yours take the cake! stay away from the computer if you can, there's not much happening here that you can't catch up on later. (not that i don't want you hanging around, but time off from the computer is a very good thing!)

That is so beautiful! Your sketches remind me of our neighbor in Germany who would go and do the same. She also sketched musicians and once the Whirling Dervishes. I admire the ability to sketch so quickly!! Hope all is well! Love, Silke
