Dancing the Night Away

I love everything about dancing. I took my first ballet class before I was 5 and, bursting with pride, was a dancing tulip by the time June came around, when I experienced my first annual dance recital. I married a good dancer and still enjoy dancing with him whenever possible, whether at someone’s wedding or, on a Friday night, at the club where we live. I particularly like watching the young dancers perform on So You Think You Can Dance and must admit that I even enjoy Dancing With the Stars. Painting dancers is even more fun for me these days, especially when it includes the challenge of portraying movement on a static canvas.

Dancing the Night Away is a portrait of a dance troupe, but it could just as easily be seen as a memory of my high school days in the late 50’s and early 60’s, when we all watched American Bandstand and dreamed about dancing on TV with our friends
