Edgar Degas

Having seen many of Degas’ works at The Met and MOMA in NYC as well as at the Louvre in Paris, I have become a fan of his work. The connections to dance and to parisian life are inspiring, passionate and ambivalent.

  1. The first performance the company I danced with was inspired by his ballerina paintings. Each group number started behind a large frame with us frozen then coming to life and stepping out of the frame. Our director had us study his paintings and that started my love of his work.
