The Arabesque is possibly the most recognizable position in the world of ballet. Combining strength, balance and exquisite beauty it is usually thought of as a “finished” position – a powerful image that is graceful and complete all on its own. But the final position of an arabesque, as in all dance, is only a brief moment in a sequence of carefully choreographed movements that define the whole. By overlapping several figures in varying stages of movement I have attempted to visually describe the excitement, energy and fluid motion of this classic position.
