Oh my goodness! I love all the angles in this picture! It's so different than what you would expect from a ballerina that it's just so beautiful--and not to mention extremely unique. This picture if lovely
I like the combination of a very athletic pose—athletic in that it is very demanding of the musculature—with the soft, delicate associations of a ballet outfit. That juxtaposition serves to highlight both what is graceful in even the most strenuous of physical acts as well as what is athletic in ballet and, indeed, all dance.
