There was a wonderful exhibition on Edgar Degas at the Musee d’Orsay when I was there recently. Here are some of the works that caught my eye:
I had a copy of the print below hanging in my childhood bedroom. I know and love this beautiful work as well as I know my own hands.
Below, I wonder…little dreamers? And, if so, dreaming of being a ballerina or a painter?

My friend and I were rendezvousing at the Piazza San Marco recently and noticed that there was music pouring out of the door leading to a small cortile to the left of the church. We followed the sound and happened upon a troupe of Russian singers and dancers who were performing in the beautiful autumn afternoon under the 500 year old roof of the cortile.
Florence is endlessly fascinating.
When I grow up, I want to attend trapeze school in London. I saw this on my recent visit and I want to try it!
I love to visit this beautiful shop in Paris! I may not wear tutus anymore, but I still love them! And toe shoes, and tights. Tutus and toe shoes and leotards, oh my!
Have you seen this? I am late to this party. World of Dance is a fun show on American tv and this group knocked me out!
