Under Grecian archesImage result for Ballet Studio At The Opera In Rue Le Peletier, 1872

The flourish of tulle fills the empty spaces

Virginal white.

Music box dancers

Dreaming of more.

Posture, alignment, discipline and flexibility

En pointe with the whim of the instructor.

The cane is not just for show.

A stranger has arrived,

Heavy with the weight of responsibility;

Indifferent to the art,

He will choose

The coquettish smile.
